This month’s speaker will be Dr Marcel Klaassen from Deakin University who will 
talk about
“Migratory birds in jeopardy: global change getting in the way”.

Migrants typically rely on a chain of sites rather than a single site during 
their annual cycle, increasing their chances of becoming victim to 
anthropogenic environmental change. Australia is home to large numbers of 
Arctic-breeding shorebirds that have seen the environment along their 
East-Asian Australasian Flyway change dramatically over the past decades. 
Changes that are being held responsible for a decimation in some of these 
species. But critical environmental changes for shorebirds are not limited to 
coastal habitat deteriorations and destructions. Also climate change has a 
profound impact on these migrants’ behaviour, population dynamics and habitus. 
The question is where the ultimate constraints are in the resilience of these 
migrants to further environmental change and how we can mitigate further 
threats through directed conservation efforts.

Where: Ground floor, 60 Leicester St, Carlton. Free parking out front.
When:7:30 pm Thursday 12th July 2018.

Organised by the BirdLife Victoria Group.
