Redwood Region Audubon Society invites you to an online presentation on Friday, October 8, 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., entitled “Uncovering the Hidden World of a Secretive Seabird” with Jennifer Bailey Guerrero.

The Marbled Murrelet is an endangered seabird that nests in old-growth, coastal forests from central California to Alaska, up to 50 miles inland. This seabird species has long challenged both scientists and land managers alike with its unique life history and secretive nature. With little known information about murrelet nesting in Oregon, public and private forest managers struggle with how to address the conservation of this species. Since 2017, Oregon State University scientists have been tracking this elusive species on its long journey from the ocean to the coastal forests, collecting data that will help to inform future policy on land management.

Jennifer Bailey Guerrero grew up exploring all that Oregon’s wild has to offer. From the coast to the mountains to the plains, she set out at a young age to spend as much time outdoors as possible, a passion that gradually evolved into a career in science. Jennifer received a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Earth Science from Northern Colorado University in 2008 and a Master’s of Science in Biological Oceanography from the University of Rhode Island – Graduate School of Oceanography in 2012. She now serves as the program manager for the Oregon Marbled Murrelet Project and provides the ocean expertise for ongoing research efforts. Visit rras.org to obtain the Zoom presentation link.
