Friends Of Cooper Island Present: George Divoky: 40th Anniversary Celebration

Town Hall Seattle says
Seattle field biologist George Divoky has been summering in Alaska’s remote Cooper Island for the past 40 years--with only polar bears and Black Guillemot seabirds to keep him company. Since 1975 he’s studied this colony of birds--who previously nested further south--and what their presence has to say about climate change, the Arctic pack ice, and this precarious northern ecosystem. Divoky (who founded Friends of Cooper Island and is a Research Associate at the University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Institute of Arctic Biology) will celebrate the organization’s 40th anniversary by sharing anecdotes and observations from his decades of residency with the birds. He’ll give an overview of how the melting ice is affecting the birds and polar bears, as well as the organization’s plans to continue monitoring the Arctic as the earth continues to warm.
