Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM (EST)
New Approaches to Solving Conservation Problems on a Really Big Scale – Charles Duncan in the Merry Room at the Duxbury Free Library (Rescheduled)
Please join us at the Duxbury Free Library on Wednesday, February 27th for “New Approaches to Solving Conservation Problems on a Really Big Scale,” a presentation by Manomet Shorebird Recovery Project Director Charles Duncan. This event was previously scheduled on February 17th but was postponed due to the blizzard.
What happens when an issue stretches over borders and cultures, making it too big and complex to be addressed by any single organization? What happens when the issue spans half the Earth and no single government, nonprofit, corporation or treaty organization has the authority or enough resources to solve it?
As the director of Manomet’s Shorebird Recovery Project, Charles Duncan faces these challenges every day. Conserving populations of long-distance migrants like shorebirds requires creative solutions, some of which may surprise you. Duncan will share success stories, the lessons he has learned and the new paths that have been forged in global conservation efforts.
Prior to the presentation, guests may view David Grossman's photography exhibit, "South Shore and Beyond," at the Helen Bumpus Gallery which is located on the main level of the library.
Light refreshments will be offered.
