2019 Speaker Series: Birding Without Borders
July 16, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm MDT$15
Named a “Travel Pioneer” by the BBC and the “Birdman of Razzmatazz” by Newsweek, Noah Strycker is a writer, photographer, and bird man. In 2015, Strycker set himself a lofty goal: to become the first person to see half the planet’s birds in one year.
For 365 days, with a backpack, binoculars, and a series of one-way tickets, he traveled across 41 countries and all seven continents, eventually spotting 6,042 species—by far the biggest birding year on record. In his book Birding Without Borders, Strycker ventures deep into a world of blood-sucking leeches, chronic sleep deprivation, airline snafus, breakdowns, mudslides, floods, war zones, ecological devastation, conservation triumphs, common and iconic species, and scores of passionate bird lovers around the globe. He offers a hopeful message that although many birds face an uncertain future, more people than ever are working to protect them.

GIS is an acronym that stands for Geographic Information Science, or Geographic Information System. This powerful technology enables Bird Conservancy Biologists to answer research questions, design scientific surveys, and measure the impacts of conservation projects on bird populations at a landscape scale.
The past year of pandemic life has been a struggle for most us in many ways. For a field biologist who truly values time outdoors and in nature, the transition to telework and isolation is particularly impactful. But forced solitude leads to unexpected new perspectives, including a stronger connection to the land, nature, and community.
Diversity, inclusion, equity, and accessibility are essential to our work at Bird Conservancy of the Rockies. We are working to promote these principles at every level of our organization, including in our most public-facing communication tool – our website. We are therefore excited to launch the Recite Me toolbar on our website, which you can access on a desktop, laptop, and mobile device!
A chewed tree stump, an interwoven dam of sticks, logs, and mud, or a what might look like a pile of mud with branches and grasses are all signs you are in a beaver territory. And this territory is on its way to becoming a thriving part of our ecosystem!
