In this Zoom meeting, Karen McDonald of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center will introduce us to the North American River Otter. It is native to the Chesapeake Bay, but not much research has been done on its populations, habits, and role in the Bay’s food webs. Karen will share basic river otter biology and otter research occurring at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. She will also touch on the newly formed Chesapeake Bay River Otter Alliance.
Instead of in-person meetings, SMAS is hosting virtual lectures using Zoom. We will send invitations via email with a link for joining each online event.
