Face to Face: Red Knots: Snowbirds in the land of fire

During the winter you are a robin-sized grey and white shorebird often seen feeding along the seashore in places like Florida, Brazil and Argentina.

Exclusively for ROM Members.  Registration is required as space is limited.

Red Knots are marathon migrators that fly 30,000 km per year between the Canadian Arctic, where they breed, and Tierra del Fuego, where they spend our winter.  Dr. Allan Baker will give insights into his ongoing efforts to prevent the extinction of these remarkable birds.

Face to Face today will take place in the ROM's Digital Gallery for the entire hour. 

If you find you are unable to attend after registering, please let us know so that we can release your spot for another member.
