On Planet Philadelphia today - what is happening with bird and insect populations toady and what we can do to help them.
Ornithologist, Drexel professor, and curator at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Jason Weckstein, shares his research on bird population trends across evolutionary history. Douglas Sponsler, a postdoctoral scholar at Penn State University and honorary research associate at the Academy of Natural Sciences will discuss trends in bee populations. And Carrie Barron, manager and director at the Audubon Center in Audubon PA, will tell us what the famous nineteenth-century ornithologist, John James Audubon, discovered about declining bird populations. Barron will also apprise us of this year’s Christmas bird count.
