Point Blue Celebrating 50 Years of Protecting and Studying California’s Birds

Tue, Dec 8, 2015 — 10:00 AM KQED FORUM with Michael Krasny Download audio (MP3)

Point Blue Conservation Science, originally named “Point Reyes Bird Observatory” is celebrating 50 years of its conservation efforts. 50 years ago the Point Reyes Bird Observatory was founded to study migratory birds. In the decades since, the organization, now called Point Blue Conservation Science and headquartered in Petaluma, has expanded to include wide-ranging ecosystem conservation, working to reduce the effects of habitat loss and climate change on birds and other wildlife. In its 50th anniversary year, Forum talks with Point Blue about changes in California’s bird populations, the health of bird habitats and threatened birds of the Bay Area.
