Submit your questions in advance HERE.

Tune in for a special Earth Week Labside Chat with Zeka Glucs, director of the Predatory Bird Research Group at UC Santa Cruz, on Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 11:00 AM PDT. Learn how the peregrine falcon’s recovery serves as an example and inspiration for tackling today’s environmental challenges.

Join the conversation! Submit your questions in advance for Zeka, then watch the conversation to hear the answers during the live chat. Help us put together questions such as:

  • What is a predatory bird, and how are their populations monitored in California?
  • What successful tools are used to save predatory birds from potential extinction?
  • How do predatory birds correlate with ocean conservation?

We want your questions! Submit your questions in advance HERE.
