Please join us when Dena Spatz talks about applying data science to inform avian conservation on islands. Dr. Spatz leads a database building project of the world’s active seabird restoration efforts, tracking the methods and outcomes and conservation efforts, to inform best-practices and help expand the conservation effort.
Dr. Spatz received her PHD from the Coastal Conservation Lab at UC Santa Cruz where she examined the biogeography of threatened island birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles, and opportunities for their conservation and is currently a Senior Conservation Scientist at Pacific Rim Conservation (PRC). The mission of PRC is to maintain and restore native bird diversity, populations, and habitats in Hawaii and across the Pacific region. PRC primarily focuses on seabird conservation and translocation of populations into predator-free habitats.

This program was arranged by our friends at the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO), a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habits through science and outreach.
