Location: Online (Zoom)
The BirdLife Malta Events and Activities Committee would like to invite you to join us, as we hear from our guest speaker – Conservation Ecologist Dr Adrian Delnevo.
Originally Dr Delnevo trained as a teacher, but over the years he has led ecological scientific expeditions globally. He has done work with a number of species and habitats and gained a Ph.D. in seabird population ecology along the way. He led the conservation science of one of Europe’s most endangered seabirds, the Roseate Tern, and spent five years studying them throughout Europe and following them around their African ‘winter’ quarters. He has since continued studying ‘roseates’ in the Caribbean, and has now worked on this and other tern species for over 30 years. His work over the years has also led to him being invited to the USA to provide scientific litigation support for ecological and natural resources to legal cases.
As well as everything mentioned above, Adrian also sits on numerous National and International Scientific oversight committees, is an Adjunct Professor, a Research Fellow, Visiting Professor and contributor to Universities, Non-Governmental Organisations and Governmental Institutions throughout the Caribbean, U.S.A., and Europe.
Dr Delnevo feels fortunate in having the opportunity to work on a variety of bird conservation projects around the world, and BirdLife Malta is honoured to have him present a selection of these projects and experiences to us. He will also be identifying some of the common themes and issues faced over the years.
