Virtual Speaker Series with Jen Smith
Join the National Aviary’s Senior Aviculturist Jennifer Smith to learn how the National Aviary is leading the way for a hopeful future for these birds, and what it takes to bring back a species from the brink of extinction.
Over the course of only a few decades, an invasive species decimated the bird populations on the island of Guam. A handful of species, rescued by conservationists in a race against the clock to avoid their extinction, were brought into human care. Survival for the Guam Kingfisher and the Guam Rail, with fewer than 200 individuals from each species in human care, depends on international coordinated conservation efforts.
