Saving Seabirds: New Lessons from Puffins and Terns
Event Dates and Times
- Starts: 5:30 PM
Southwest Harbor Public Library, 338 Main Street, Southwest Harbor, ME 04679
Dr. Stephen Kress will be at the Southwest Harbor Public Library Tuesday evening, August 8, 5:30 to discuss the effort being made to protect puffins and other seabirds.
Worldwide, about one third of all seabird species are now globally threatened because of effects of invasive predatory mammals, marine pollution, coastal development and effects of global warming. A recent study has shown that 60% of all seabirds have vanished in the last 60 years. As the most threatened group of birds on Earth, the topic would seem hopeless. Yet the program that Dr. Kress will present is one of hope and inspiration as he will share exciting restoration projects that are helping some of the world’s rarest seabirds.
Kress, Director of National Audubon Society's Seabird Restoration Program and Hog Island Audubon Camp, will also discuss insights into the changing Gulf of Maine as revealed by puffins and terns. His research has shown the connections between warm water, increased rainfall and the plankton blooms that nourish forage fish such as herring and hake. He will also share the recent discovery of the previously unknown winter home for Maine puffins- an area known as the ‘coral canyons and sea mounts’ off New England’s continental shelf.
For more than 40 years, Kress has developed methods for restoring and managing colonial nesting seabirds, especially puffins and terns. His research interests include developing methods for restoring populations of colonial water birds and management of their habitat. He is also interested in adaptive foraging ecology of seabird colonies in response to climate change and fisheries. Hundreds of professional seabird biologists can trace their first interest in seabirds to working with Dr. Kress at Audubon’s Maine Seabird Sanctuaries. He received his Ph.D. from Cornell University in natural resources and environmental education.
Kress is the co-author, with Derrick Jackson of the new book: ‘Project Puffin: the Improbable Quest to Bring a Beloved Seabird Back to Egg Rock.’ A book signing will follow the lecture. For more information, call the Library at 244-7065.
