Bad Reputations: Cormorants and Conservation with Gail Fraser

June 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Since their rapid population recovery in the Great Lakes, double-crested cormorants have a bad reputation because they are a large black water bird that eats fish and their nesting habits kill trees. Professor Gail Fraser describes the role of cormorants in the Great Lakes ecosystems and how cormorant ecology relates to biodiversity conservation.

Gail Fraser is an associate professor in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University. She has worked on colonial nesting water birds for over two-decades. Her masters work (North Dakota State University ) was on the foraging ecology of Forster’s terns and PhD work (Memorial University of Newfoundland) was on the parental care of crested auklets. With her depth of knowledge and experience this is sure to be a fascinating and illuminating talk.
