Dr. Jerome “Jerry” Jackson will present “Soccer, Shopping Centers, and Florida's Loggerhead Shrikes: An Accidental Conservation Success Story” on Monday December 18 at 7pm. 

This free program open to this public will be hosted by Hendry-Glades Audubon at the Hendry County Extension Dallas Townsend Building at 1085 Pratt Blvd. In LaBelle.

Dr. Jerome “Jerry A. Jackson is recognized as the world's expert on the ivory-billed woodpecker. The winner of the 2004 Chandler Robbins Education and Conservation Award from the American Birding Association, Jackson is the former Whitaker Eminent Scholar in Science at Florida Gulf Coast University. Dr. Jackson takes you through your backyard, and Southwest Florida’s beaches, swamps and preserves to learn about “The Wild Things” on his daily public radio program.

In this presentation, he will introduce the behavior and ecology of Loggerhead Shrikes whose populations in Florida appear to be doing well, while those elsewhere are declining and endangered. What factors have influenced their success here? How can we build on these successes to further help this fascinating species?
