Eagles in Connecticut: Return of an Icon
Tuesday November 14, 2017
Bald eagles were once in such dire trouble that people discussed what should replace them as America’s national symbol. The ongoing story of their recovery as a species in Connecticut will be the subject of a talk by wildlife biologist, Brian Hess.
With accompanying projected images, Mr. Hess will explain eagle biology and the story of their perilous population decline and subsequent re-covery, as well as what is being done to con-serve their populations for future generations.
Brian Hess is a wildlife biologist with the Con-necticut Department of Energy and Environmen-tal Protection. Mr. Hess studied wildlife conser-vation as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and received his M.S. from the Univer-sity of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. He has worked with California condors, greater prairie-chickens, mottled ducks, and shorebirds before starting with DEEP in 2014. The Wildlife Division’s Wild-life Diversity Program conserves non-game wild-life. As part of that group, Brian works to moni-tor and conserve large raptors, reptiles, and amphibians.
