The Hamden Land Conservation Trust will sponsor a talk titled “Eagles in Connecticut: Return of an Icon” with guest speaker wildlife biologist Brian Hess on Thursday, Jan. 19 from 7 to 9 p.m., at Whitney Center, which is located at 200 Leeder Hill Drive in Hamden.
Bald eagles were once in such dire trouble that people discussed what should replace them as America’s national symbol. Guest speaker Brian Hess will talk about eagle biology, their decline, their recovery, and what is being done to conserve their populations for future generations.
Brian Hess is a wildlife biologist with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. The Wildlife Division’s Wildlife Diversity Program conserves non-game wildlife. As part of that program, Brian works to monitor and conserve large raptors, reptiles, and amphibians. He studied wildlife conservation as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and received his M.S. from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. He worked with California condors, greater prairie-chickens, mottled ducks, and shorebirds prior to joining CT DEEP in 2014.
