Virginia's Tropical Connections

Greg Butcher presented “Virginia’s Tropical Connections,” focusing on Neotropical migratory birds. Greg is the Migratory Species Coordinator for the U.S. Forest Service International Programs. More than one-third of the bird species in the US (over 350 species) migrate to Latin America and the Caribbean each year. The migratory species program works with a broad range of partners throughout the world to conserve habitats and populations of birds, bats, butterflies, and dragonflies.
