Monthly Program - May 18 featuring Dr. Thomas Sherry

Hi All,

The New Orleans Sierra Club group is hosting our monthly meeting on May 18 featuring a talk by Dr. Thomas Sherry from the Tulane Department of Ecology and Environmental Biology.

"Tropical forest loss and fragmentation threaten tropical birds: a case study from Central America"

Dr Sherry's research shows how man made tropical forest loss, fragmentation, loss of large predators like jaguars, and potentially climate change is harming bird populations in Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua.

The Sierra Club meets at Audubon Zoo in Dominion Auditorium. For more i information, visit the Sierra Club Delta Chapter event on Facebook. The program is free and open to everyone. Refreshments start at 6:30, talk from 7 to 8 pm

Natasha Noordhoff
Publicity Chair of the Sierra Club/New Orleans Group
