Finding Solutions to Habitat Fragmentation
Saturday, September 22 at 10:00 a.m.
Mobility, for many creatures, is critical for finding food, for breeding and producing young, and for seeking protection from changing weather conditions. Human infrastructure, such as roadways, railroad lines, and culverts often make such movement dangerous or even impossible. Maine Audubon and many other organizations work with citizen scientists and road professionals to try to identify the most dangerous stretches of road for wildlife, and to develop solutions to reduce harm to wildlife. From forested bridges built over highways, to salamander tunnels below the road, different wildlife species require different solutions for crossing roads. Presenter Sarah Haggerty, of Maine Audubon, is a Conservation Biologist who focuses much of her work on issues of habitat connectivity and finding solutions to problems of habitat fragmentation. This program is sponsored by Voice for Animals.
Fall Film Series

Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they've wandered in and out of people's lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame, and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could. Unrated. 79 minutes.
