Over the course of only a few decades, an invasive species decimated the bird populations on the island of Guam. A handful of species, rescued by conservationists in a race against the clock to avoid their extinction, were brought into human care. Survival for the Guam Kingfisher and the Guam Rail depends on international coordinated conservation efforts.
Join the February Virtual Speaker Series event to learn how the National Aviary is leading the way for a hopeful future for these birds, and what it takes to bring back a species from the brink of extinction.
The Virtual Speaker Series: A Race Against the Clock to Save Endangered Species features National Aviary Senior Aviculturist, Jen Smith, and will be held on Thursday, February 11 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.
