Tuesdays in the Newsroom: Bats and Otters and Snakes, oh my!
Some of the most interesting inhabitants of Martha's Vineyard are seldom seen by the rest of us. Some are nocturnal, some are endangered and some are just plain shy. Wildlife biologists Luanne Johnson and Liz Olson, the founding director and assistant director of BiodiversityWorks, have made it their life work to monitor and study wildlife populations on the Island, including the rare Northern long-eared bat, the black racer snake, the coastal river otter and the piping plover, among others.
Founded in 2011, BiodiversityWorks collaborates with conservation organizations and gets students, scientists and other volunteers engaged in identifying, researching and protecting the unusual mix of species that can be found on Martha's Vineyard.
Join us for Tuesdays in the Newsroom as Luanne and Liz bring us the latest research from their work with bats, snakes, migratory shorebirds, and turtles.
Tuesdays in the Newsroom is the Vineyard Gazette's speaker and discussion series, held once a month in the off-season for readers who want more engagement with the news and newsmakers.
Doors open at 5:15 p.m. for a brief reception, followed by the program, which is free to subscribers of the Vineyard Gazette. Non-subscribers pay $10. Advance registration is required because of limited space.
