A World on the Wing: Jessica Catto Dialogue
A World on the Wing: The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds
Join ACES at the Hotel Jerome on Thursday, July 6 at 6pm for a Jessica Catto Dialogue with author Scott Weidensaul.
Even as scientists make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch, humans have brought many migrants to the brink. Based on his bestselling new book “A World on the Wing,” author and researcher Scott Weidensaul takes you around the globe to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world’s great bird migrations.
