The Raptor Trust is pleased to present New York Times bestselling author, Jennifer Ackerman, as the keynote speaker for this year’s Leonard and Diane Soucy Memorial Fund Lecture Series on Sunday, November 1st at 3 p.m. via Zoom.
In this multimedia presentation, Ackerman discusses her research on the secret (and often bizarre!) wonders of the avian world. From fascinating tales of mimicry, plumage, deception, and cooperation, she concludes that bird behavior is like ours in many ways, with cultures as varied and complex as humans’.
Ackerman has been writing about science, nature, and biology for more than three decades. Her book, The Genius of Birds, has been published in 20 languages and was named one of the 10 best nonfiction books of 2016 by The Wall Street Journal. Her current book, The Bird Way, is a New York Times bestseller. Find out more about this groundbreaking book –and other books by Ackerman– here.
The Raptor Trust has provided free medical care to all species of wild birds since 1983. The Trust has a fully equipped medical infirmary, including an intensive care wing. The Raptor Trust provides care for approximately 50% of all birds and 25% of all wildlife admitted to rehabilitation centers in New Jersey. The number of birds we admit each year has increased from 2,000 in 1990 to over 6,000 in 2018.
The Raptor Trust is located in Millington on White Bridge Road, bordering the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. We are home to approximately 50 resident birds, an on-site medical and rehabilitation center and education center.
The Raptor Trust is currently closed to visitors, but remains open for bird admitting.
