SPEAKER: Rich Santangelo & Kerri Dikun
TOPIC: Be a Good Egg
The “Be a Good Egg” program’s goal is to create public awareness about
threatened beach-nesting bird species and the simple precautions that can be
taken to help protect local nesting sites. It provides opportunities for people
to help protect, learn about, and survey these species. In SSAS’s territory, the
program has been used in Jones Beach, Lido Beach, and Point Lookout.
Rich Santangelo is the “For the Birds!” Education Coordinator at the Theodore
Roosevelt Sanctuary and Audubon Center in Oyster Bay; he has led bird walks in
New York, New Jersey, Florida, and China (where he served in the Peace Corps).
Kerri Dikun is the Long Island Bird Conservation Coordinator for Audubon New
York and has held a number of positions focused on endangered species, including
Piping Plovers and Least Terns, as well as species of concern such as Wilson’s
Plovers and American Woodcock. Join us for an interesting slide presentation.
