Join us for a captivating evening with scientist Breck Tyler and artist Caren Loebel-Fried exploring the ecology and conservation of Pacific Albatrosses.
Breck Tyler’s Presentation: Albatrosses travel thousands of miles across ocean basins, returning to land only to nest. Midway Atoll, a tiny island in the remote Northwestern Hawaiian chain, is one of the world’s largest albatross colonies, hosting more than a million nesting birds. Sharing his experiences from 30 years at Midway, Breck will tell us about the adaptations, ecology, and conservation of these magnificent creatures.
Caren Loebel-Fried’s Presentation: Art and stories through the ages have helped people connect with nature. With photos and videos of albatrosses from her research on Midway Atoll, Caren shares the stories behind the iconic art she created for Midway Atoll and the storybook, A Perfect Day for an Albatross. Caren aims to bring people, young and older, closer to the natural world with the hope that they will want to help care for it.
