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.
