Free Conservation Talk at Sequoia Park Zoo

January 9, 2014 – Join us on Wednesday, January 15 at 7 p.m. as local wildlife biologists Sandra Hunt-von Arb and Jim Campbell-Spickler share their experience in helping to make the Humboldt Bay Eagles nestcam a reality at Sequoia Park Zoo’s January conservation lecture. They’ll also discuss their vision for educational outreach and citizen science opportunities presented by remote technologies like the nestcam and the widespread availability of Internet-enabled devices like tablets and smartphones.

For much of 2013, millions of Bald eagle fans around the world were glued to the Humboldt Bay Eagle Cam – made possible by a grant from the Sequoia Park Zoo Conservation Fund. The parent eagles have made their home in Humboldt Bay since 2006 and the famous pair has just returned to their territory to start courtship and nest restoration in preparation for their ninth year on the Bay.

Jim Campbell-Spickler is the chief biologist for Eco-Ascension Research and Consulting, and serves as a forest canopy ecologist with the Redwood Climate Change Initiative (RCCI) studying the implications of climate change for old-growth coast redwood and giant sequoia forests in California. He has worked with the Institute for Wildlife Studies since 2000, specializing in tree and cliff nest access and handling of eaglets during work related to the reintroduction of the bald eagle to the Channel Islands, California.

Sandra Hunt-von Arb is the Senior Wildlife Biologist for Pacific North Western Biological. She conducts biological assessments and surveys of forest raptors including Spotted owls, eagles, and hawks as they relate to forestry practices. She received the 2008 Professional of the Year award from the California North Coast Chapter of The Wildlife Society (CNCCTWS), promoting wildlife science and education for both current and future wildlife professionals.

The talk will take place in the Zoo’s classroom in the Secrets of the Forest building at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 15, and a reception will be held half an hour beforehand. There is no charge to attend, and both Zoo members and non-members are invited. RSVP to the event on Facebook here.
