A Rare Look at Seabirds in a Warming World: 4 Decades of Climate Change - Legendary Alaskan birder George Divoky describes his research on a remote Alaskan island

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars
George Divoky has studied seabirds in Alaska since 1970 when, as a researcher at the Smithsonian Institution, he participated in the Coast Guard's survey of the Arctic Ocean adjacent to Prudhoe Bay. Since 1975, he has lived for three months alone every summer on remote Cooper Island, at the edge of the arctic pack ice, where his observations of Black Guillemots provide one of the best examples of a biological response to the reality of global warming in the arctic. Divoky's research and his struggle to maintain a long-term study on a desolate arctic island were the focus of a New York Times Magazine cover story entitled "George Divoky's Planet."
