Conservation Lecture Series Presents: CDFW Monitoring of the Salton Sea
Conservation Lecture Series is hosting a lecture on Wednesday, June 19, 10 a.m.-12 p.m. titled "CDFW Monitoring of the Salton Sea."
Please join us for the next installment of the Conservation Lecture Series, where Dr. Nasseer Idrisi will talk about California Department of Fish and Wildlife monitoring of the Salton Sea. The monitoring has revealed concurrent declines in the tilapia population in the Sea and piscivorous birds that feed on the tilapia. Other fish surviving in the Salton Sea include desert pupfish (Cyprinodon macularius) and sailfin molly (Poecilia latipinna). The piscivorous birds that use the Salton Sea as feeding grounds and are impacted by the decline in the fish population include American white pelicans (Pelecanus erythrorhynchos), brown pelicans (Pelecanus occidentalis), and double crested cormorants (Phalacrocorax auratus).
Date: Wednesday, June 19, 10 a.m-12 p.m.
