Sue Morse of Keeping Track led a fascinating talk on cougars in 2016 for an event sponsored by The Nature Museum. If you were in the audience that night, than you know that she is an incredibly knowledgeable speaker and naturalist. She will be returning to our neck of the woods in February for an event we are co-sponsoring with the Cavendish Community and Conservation Association at the Cavendish Elementary School.
Her program will enlighten the audience about the ways in which northern wildlife species are affected already by climate change. She will touch on the effects of this shift on the lives of Canada lynx, moose, American marten, caribou, polar bears, arctic fox and arctic marine and waterfowl ecology.
It's not all doom and gloom; Morse will share not only her knowledge, but her passion for these creatures. She will showcase these animals' incredible beauty and strength with her cache of stunning photography. We promise it will be an informative and inspiring night.
Sue Morse is a nationally recognized naturalist and habitat specialist with forty years of experience tracking and monitoring wildlife uses of habitat throughout North America. When not in the field conducting research, leading training programs or photographing wildlife, Sue can often be found presenting her findings and award-winning images to a wide range of audiences.
Ms. Morse founded a non-profit organization called Keeping Track® in 1994, out of her concern that development in all its forms often unwittingly harms, isolates and even eliminates habitat critical to local biodiversity and broad-scale ecological health. Using data from Keeping Track teams, agency officials, land trusts, regional planners and local boards can put their limited conservation resources to their best use. To date, more than 40,000 acres of land in 12 states and Quebec have been conserved on the basis of evidence gathered by Keeping Track teams.
