Integrating Economics and Ecology for Seasonal Migratory Species Conservation

Friday, March 26, 2021 | 10:00 - 11:00 am | Virtual Forum

Species that migrate face different natural and anthropogenic threats than other species. Protecting migratory species poses unique policy challenges because survival depends on the migratory process's integrity through space and time, which may cross multiple media (air, land, or water), jurisdictions, and individuals facing differing incentives for protection. Representing both ecological characteristics of migratory species and the economic and institutional settings throughout their annual habitat is essential for policy development to the conservation of migratory behavior and species. 

The Baker Cafe Series is an informal discussion about various topics. Guests are encouraged to ask questions that pertain to the topic and gain insight straight from the experts. Dr. Charles Sims will describe the spatial and temporal requirements for successful migrations. These ecological characteristics are vital to understanding migratory behavior, and socio-economic considerations needed for successful policy development. 

This virtual event is free and open to the public. The zoom meeting link can be found here.
