Dr. Kevin Kerr, Curator of Birds and Invertebrates at the Toronto Zoo, joins me on the podcast to discuss the husbandry and conservation projects at the Zoo. If you are into birds, then this episode is for you!. Kevin talks about how species are chosen to be hosted at the Zoo; which species participate in the breeding programs; and, which species can be seen at the Zoo! He also talks about how some bird species are not visible to the public at the Zoo and why.
We also have a discussion on the Eastern Loggerhead Shrike Conservation Program at the Toronto Zoo that includes a number of collaborators and installing a tracking tower to collect information on the number of individuals that fly close to the area for a larger conservation project. Tune into the episode for more details.
