No One Reads Books Anymore!
Featuring Robert Alvo
Thursday February 14th , 12-1pm
BABINA (Being a Bird in North America) is a unique book combining science and humour. It is aimed at 6th graders to the most hardened adult. It focuses on the most interesting aspects of each bird species, whether or not they be human-related. Reader discretion is advised, for some of the conservation issues are difficult to stomach.
Robert Alvo is a conservation biologist, bird expert, and author of Being a Bird in North America (BABINA). He founded Canada’s first Conservation Data Center, negotiated land protection deals for Quebec’s arm of the Nature Conservancy of Canada. He examined the effects of acid rain on the Common Loon, and has continued that research for over thirty years. The latest results from this project were published in 2009, reporting on 25 years of research.
