National Audubon Society executive David Ringer, who was on the front lines of the 2010 BP oil spill for Audubon, will speak about humans’ impact on birds and how people can work together to protect their future at the city of Palm Coast’s upcoming Birds of a Feather Fest, according to a press release.
Ringer’s free keynote lecture, “Protecting Birds Together, Today and Tomorrow,” will begin at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, at the Palm Coast Community Center, 305 Palm Coast Parkway NE. The program is free, but participants are asked to register in advance at https://www.birdingfest.com.
“Decreasing numbers of birds or a particular species can tell us much about an ecosystem and how it’s doing,” birder Jason Giraulo, the city's digital communications coordinator, said in the press release.
Ringer previously served as Audubon’s national communications director, and before that as Audubon’s communications director for the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi Flyway. He was Audubon’s front-line public relations manager in Louisiana during the BP oil disaster.
