Banquet Speaker, Dr. P. Dee Boersma, to Discuss her research on seabirds as indicators of environmental change.
Dr. P. Dee Boersma has been called the “Jane Goodall of penguins.” Boersma, who has a doctorate in zoology, holds the Wadsworth Endowed Chair in Conservation Science at the University of Washington. Her academic research in conservation biology focuses on seabirds as indicators of environmental change. She has been the director of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s study of Magellanic penguins at Punta Tombo, Argentina, home of the world’s largest colony of Magellanic penguins for 30 years. Boersma and her students follow the lives of individual penguins, monitor the colony, and develop the data needed to plan effective conservation efforts. In the Galapagos Islands she is building “condos” to increase the Galapagos penguin population. Boersma was awarded a 2010 Fulbright fellowship to study wildlife videography in New Zealand and was named one of the Nature Conservancy’s “Conservation Heroes of the last 50 years” in 2011. She received the Ocean Conservation Award from the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California in 2012. Dr. Boersma and Pablo Borboroglu edited “Penguins: Natural History and Conservation” in 2013.
Join us for a fun-filled evening, with a social hour and silent auction beginning at 6pm and dinner served at 7pm.
