Rhode Island-based science writer Todd McLeish has been writing about wildlife and environmental issues for more than 25 years. In more than 100 magazine articles, he has highlighted numerous threatened species, profiled biologists and wildlife artists and described encounters with a wide variety of animals. In this talk, he will introduce the remarkable lives of the rarest and most endangered wildlife in New England, from birds and beetles to whales and plants. Join him on an entertaining first-person journey as he tracks basking sharks, collects biopsy samples from humpback whales, investigates the nesting burrows of elusive seabirds and observes the metamorphosis of rare dragonflies. His talk is based on two books he has authored about imperiled species. These will be available for purchase and signing following his presentation.
