Join The 300 Committee and the Salt Pond Areas Bird Sanctuaries for their exciting Winter and Spring Speaker Series. This month, Liz Baldwin, the assistant director of BiodiversityWorks on Martha’s Vineyard, will talk about the biology and natural history of the North American river otter.
In 2011, Liz and her colleague Luanne Johnson founded BiodiversityWorks to focus on regional wildlife research and monitoring and to mentor students in field biology. One of their early research projects was to document river otter activity across Martha’s Vineyard. Liz expanded this work for her master’s degree and looked at the activity patterns, behaviors, and population status of the river otter in a northeast coastal environment. Join this talk to learn all about otters!
