      SPECIAL PRESENTATION ON WILDLIFE OF SOUTHERN AFRICA

      World traveler Dr. Fred Hanson will present a slide program on Southern
      African wildlife to the Mendocino Coast Audubon Society on October 20th
      at the Redwood Coast Senior Center in Fort Bragg. Dr. Hanson and his
      wife Sally have traveled 5 times to Africa and three of those trips were
      to Southern Africa, which Fred defines as anything south of the Zambezi
      River. Their most recent trip was a month in July and August 2003,
      driving about 7000 miles, covering parts of South Africa, Botswana,
      Zimbabwe, and Namibia. An Emeritus professor, retired from U.C.Davis
      School of Medicine, Dr. Hanson has "birded" all over the world since age
      6. . In addition to numerous scientific papers, he is an antique duck
      decoy collector and has co-authored the definitive book on decoys of the
      Pacific Flyway. Active in Yolo Audubon and an 8 year volunteer with
      Point Reyes Bird Observatory in the Snowy Plover program he monitors
      three beaches: Dillon, Doran(Bodega Bay), and Salmon Creek.

      The meeting which begins at 7 p.m. is open to the public and is preceded
      by a no host catered dinner at 6p.m. Cost of the dinner is $15.00 for
      non members ($12.00 for members). For further information, call
      937-1742.

        Spills, Seabirds, and Restoration Efforts in California




        Join us at March 21 meeting as Steve Hampton of the California Department of
        Fish and Game's Office of Spill Prevention and Response (DFG-OSPR) will
        introduce us to the world of oil spills, seabird conservation issues, and
        seabird restoration efforts. Our journey will begin in California, but
        we'll ride on the wings of shearwaters, murrelets, and grebes to such places
        as Mexico, New Zealand, and the Aleutian Islands. On the way, we'll learn
        about major threats to seabird populations, covering everything from rats
        and cats to tiny bits of plastic garbage. We'll also learn about some
        innovative restoration projects currently underway, offering hope for
        seabirds in an otherwise stormy sea.

          Reminder-

          Albatross and Penguins:The world through the Eyes of a Seabird

          Monday November 16th 7:00 pm- Fort Bragg Town Hall
          Mendocino Coast Audubon invites you to Join naturalist and popular
          expedition leader, Ted Cheeseman, for a lecture exploring what it is to be a
          seabird in the vast unforgiving desert of the open ocean. How is it that
          albatross can fly 14,000 miles on a single feeding trip to bring home just
          one meal for a chick? How can penguins thrive and raise chicks in the
          world's harshest environments, but cannot survive in mild temperate waters?

          Illustrated with images from worldwide travels with Cheesemans' Ecology
          Safaris, Ted will tell stories of the new insight we have into the lives of
          seabirds through recent science, especially GPS- telemetry. We are only now
          learning about the truly magnificent lives of these penguins and albatross,
          just as they face sharp declines at the hands of industrial fishing and
          climate change. Ted frequently travels across the Southern Ocean to
          Antarctica and to its sub- Antarctic islands, the heart of penguin and
          albatross habitat. It is there that he will take you, on an entertaining and
          educational journey diving with penguins and soaring with albatross, the
          world's greatest mariners.

          Ted's abiding love of penguins and albatross stems from a lifetime of
          guiding travelers to remote seabird breeding colonies. He grew up traveling
          extensively with Cheesemans' Ecology Safaris, and began studying and
          photographing wildlife very early. Just as Ted completed a master's degree
          in tropical conservation biology at Duke University, the icy grip of the
          Antarctic took hold of Ted's heart and he returned to his home state of
          California to lead and organize expeditions.

          Audubon meetings are open to the public at no charge, however a donation to
          cover costs of these programs is always welcome. For further information
          call 937-4463 or go to www.mendocinocoastaudubon.org
