Note: this event has been rescheduled for Tuesday, December 10, due to inclement weather.

The past 50 years have seen an extraordinary resurgence in osprey numbers globally – from Massachusetts to Scotland and from Finland to Australia. This good-news story has been triggered not just by cleaner waters and less contaminated fish, but also by greening cultures – dedicated groups of people who have built and protected nest sites for ospreys and who have brought the species back to regions where it has been missing for decades.

Wildlands Trust and Manomet present this talk with Dr. Alan Poole, author of a recently published book on the species, Ospreys: The Revival of a Global Raptor. Dr. Poole will lead us through this story with dazzling looks at some of the places where Ospreys are found, and with introductions to a few of the colorful characters who have helped make this Osprey revival possible. Part travelogue, part biography, part scientific detective story: this talk will bring us up to date on the current state of one of our best-loved birds of prey.
