Annual Spaghetti Dinner
Saturday, April 28, 2018, 6PM
Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center
Join Dr. Autumn-Lynn Harrison of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center as she takes
us on an adventure across hemispheres, oceans, and our very own Chesapeake Bay,
using cutting-edge technology to discover unknown migrations to save species.
Migration is one of the most engaging phenomena of the animal world. Understanding
and tracking animal movements is essential for identifying and conserving habitats
important to species survival. Animal migration also connects cultures…the bird you
see migrating overhead in the spring, may been flying over a jaguar just weeks before.
Our knowledge about why, how, when and where most of earth’s migratory animals
migrate is still just in the early stages…leaving a lot still to be discovered.
Dr. Autumn-Lynn Harrison is a Research Ecologist with the Smithsonian Migratory
Bird Center and the Program Manager of the Migratory Connectivity Project. She
holds a Ph.D. in Ecology from University of California, Santa Cruz, a M.S. in Tropical
Marine Ecology and Fisheries Science, from James Cook University in Queensland,
Australia, and undergraduate degrees in Wildlife Science and Environmental Science
from Virginia Tech. Autumn-Lynn has a decade of experience studying the migration
of large marine vertebrates, including seabirds and seals, and has also studied the
great ungulate migrations of East Africa’s Maasai Mara. She has lived and worked in
Australia, Kenya, and South Africa, but grew up locally on Maryland’s Eastern Shore,
where her family has lived since the 1600s.
