Centers of Survival: Bird Migration and the National Wildlife Refuges
In North America, billions of birds are on the move twice every year, some migrating thousands of miles and navigating with pinpoint accuracy. These movements are fascinating, but they also make birds harder to protect. Many of the most essential sites for preserving bird populations are the National Wildlife Refuges across the United States. This program will explore the refuge system, including its history and some of the remarkable migratory birds that thrive on the refuges today.
The originator and editor of the Kaufman Field Guides series is a lifelong naturalist. His fascination with birds developed at the age of six, and he went on to become one of the world's best-known bird experts, but his interests extend to every area of nature. In addition to his work on the field guides, Kenn is also a Field Editor for Audubon Magazine, and a regular columnist for BirdWatching and Birds and Blooms.
