Reducing lead poisoning in birds, with Myra Finkelstein.
Zoom Evening Meeting, Tuesday, 3 May, 7:30 p.m.

Zoom waiting room opens 7:15 p.m.

Even though lead’s toxicity to humans and wildlife has been known for centuries, lead poisoning is still a significant problem for many avian species.  I will talk about the work our research group has done to document the sources and effects of lead poisoning in Laysan Albatross on Midway Atoll and California Condors in California. Our multi-disciplinary approach combines the fields of toxicology and population ecology to understand the impact of lead on the current and future health of these two majestic birds.  Overall, I illustrate how science is critical for the conservation of wildlife by identifying effective solutions to inform management and policy decisions.
