Brown Pelicans and Their Coastal Habitat
By Juita Martinez
Monday, February 8, 7-8pm

Take a trip to the barrier islands of Louisiana with researcher and University of Louisiana PhD student Juita Martinez. Juita’s work focuses on understanding the impacts of human-caused habitat changes on coastal seabirds, including Brown Pelicans (known as #DinosaurFloofs on her popular Twitter feed). Brown Pelicans were locally extinct in Louisiana by the 1960s, but have seen a resurgence due to concerted conservation efforts. In addition to her research, Juita’s photos of the natural world inspire thousands online, where she also works to advocate for the BIPOC community. Registration required. Limited to 500. Free
