At the Nov. 19 meeting of the Blomidon Naturalists Society, Dr. Mark Mallory will summarize a decade’s work conducting surveys and research on Ivory Gulls, an iconic seabird that has recently joined the ranks of Canada’s endangered species.
Mallory is the newest Canada Research Chair at Acadia University, focusing on coastal wetland ecosystems. He spent 20 years as a federal government biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service. At Acadia, his research locations are split between the Arctic and coastal Nova Scotia.
On Dec. 10, another Acadia professor Dr. Donald Stewart will speak about tracking Nova Scotia’s most elusive shrews.
BNS meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. in room 241 of the Beveridge Arts Centre of Acadia University. Everyone is welcome.
