Event description

Description

On Friday, February 8 at 7pm, join Cary Institute for a presentation by Heather Lynch, Associate Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University. Lynch will describe how her lab merges satellite imagery, drones, and other cutting-edge technologies with traditional field work to study the distribution and abundance of penguins and other wildlife in Antarctica. Lynch will discuss threats facing Antarctic penguins and how emerging applications of artificial intelligence and predictive modelling can guide policymakers in their efforts to protect one of the world’s last remaining wildernesses.

The event will be held in the Cary Institute auditorium. Registration for general admission is required; seating is first come, first served.

Aldo Leopold Society members may contact Vicki Doyle for reserved seating at (845) 677-7600 x203 or doylev@caryinstitute.org.
