Peter Harrison joined us in launching our latest projectMARKHAM'S STORM-PETREL PROJECT: In SEARCH of NESTING SITESin CHILE
The main objective of this project is to search for and discover reproductive colonies of this species in northern Chile. Since this species nests in underground cavities in desert regions, mining is a very real threat. Discovering reproductive sites for this species will be a very important first step in order to take conservation measures.

In addition, guests enjoyed the display of photos by National Geographic Award winning wildlife photographer, Larry Wan, founder of the Western Alliance for Nature.
