NICOLE KAHAL, MIISTAKIS INSTITUTE
Now you see them, now you don’t: What’s happening in Calgary’s wetlands?
Join Nicole Kahal, Conservation Analyst with the Miistakis Institute, to learn about Calgary’s urban amphibians, and how citizen scientists are collecting information to inform wetland conservation.
In Calgary, 90% of pre-settlement wetlands have been lost. Wetlands continue to be degraded and lost, significantly impacting biodiversity and ecosystem services important to human well-being. To better understand urban wetland health, and inform wetland management and conservation, the Miistakis Institute has developed the Call of the Wetland citizen science program, which engages citizens to monitor amphibians. Join to learn more about the program, the amphibians we are monitoring for, and results from the first two seasons.
Date: Wednesday, March 27
Time: 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Location: University of Calgary – Science Theatres – ST 135 – MAP
