Nature Night: Saving the Double-crested Cormorants of East Sand Island @ Heron Hall | Free, w/ Conservation Director Bob Sallinger

Join Conservation Director Bob Sallinger as he discusses the ongoing persecution of the world’s largest colony of Double-crested Cormorants and what we can do to protect them.

The East Sand Island Double-crested Cormorants are being targeted as the US Army Corps of Engineers carries out their plan to shoot nearly of these birds and destroy 26,000 nests under the guise of protecting salmon. At Nature Night, you’ll learn what can be done to protect both cormorants and salmon on the Columbia River and how we can stop publicly funded US government wildlife killing programs.

The US Army Corps of Engineers’ launched this plan in 2015, which would eliminate 15% of the entire Double-crested Cormorant population in the Western United States. This misguided effort was driven by a scientifically unsupported strategy to protect threatened salmon runs on the Columbia River and the Corps proceeded despite overwhelming public opposition, protests, and litigation. In 2017, the entire cormorant colony collapsed.

Today the persecution of cormorants continues while the federal government fails to address the primary causes of salmon declines on the Columbia. Sadly, this project perpetuates a long and troubling history of publicly funded federal programs engaging in the wanton slaughter of protected wildlife.

We hope you’ll join us for this important Nature Night to learn more about the East Island Double-crested Cormorants.

People of all ages are invited to enjoy the 2019 Tulip Fest, which runs daily through May 5.

“We’re excited about this upcoming season,” said Barb Iverson, Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm owner. “We had an extremely cold February and start to March, so full bloom is trending about 3 weeks behind schedule. We hope the sunshine keeps up during March so we have a little color when we open March 23rd. We often get out of town visitors here on Spring Break and we want their experience here as memorable as if we were in full bloom.” (more…)

Can you prove them wrong? Other humans have been here for some time. Perhaps if you work together, you can escape the zoo! (more…)
