Alumnus Jean Soprano (Zoology) will present her talk, "A Day in the Life of a Bird Rehabilitator" to an in-person audience at Rice Creek Field Station and a virtual audience on Zoom. Co-presenters will include five of Jean's non-releasable birds.
This presentation will cover everything from the first admittance of a sick or injured bird, to where it is housed, how it is treated, and the eventual release. Jean will also share tips for students interested in pursuing wildlife rehabilitation as a career.
Jean is a wildlife rehabilitator with decades of experience. She and her husband Len run Kindred Kingdoms Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Pennelville, NY, and annually care for dozens of animals, including birds of prey, loons, and black bears.
In-person spots for the event are limited, and therefore reserved for undergraduate students. All members of the campus community are invited to join via Zoom (as authenticated SUNY Oswego users). Signups are required for in-person attendees and encouraged for everyone:
In-person attendees should plan to take the 12 pm or 12:30 pm Green Shuttle (Centro Route 11) from Marano Campus Center.
Funding for this program is provided by the Touhsaent Zoology Fund administered by the Department of Biological Sciences.
