|2019 Sept Member Spotlight|
Multiple zoo veterinarians, veterinary technicians, curators, keepers, and biologists partnered with Pacific Bird Conservation and the Department of Fish and Wildlife for the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands recently on location in Saipan as part of a long-term project to preserve, maintain, and sustain wild populations of native forest birds through mist netting, health assessments, endocrine investigations and translocation to islands free of invasive species such as the brown tree snake. Targeted species in 2019 included the Golden White-eye (Cleptornis marchei) and the Rufous Fantail (Rhipidura rufifrons). In addition, public education programs consisting of lecture presentations, hands-on demos for elementary school children, and field/hospital site visits for high school children were provided in Saipan, Rota, and Tinian. Participants in 2019 represented over ten institutions, including:
Aquarium of the Pacific (Susan Gerros)
