The return of the osprey is one of the greatest conservation stories of the last 30 years. Mark Faherty*, Science Coordinator at Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, will share insights on the resurgence of the osprey population on the Cape. His successful volunteer program, the Cape Cod Osprey Project, has helped support a robust population of osprey, while raising public awareness and understanding about these fish-eating birds of prey.*Mark oversees a wide variety of research, from oyster reef restoration and turtle monitoring to bats and butterflies, however his primary focus is bird ecology. His Bird Report is a weekly program on Cape and Islands bird life that airs each Wednesday on WCAI, the Cape and Islands NPR station.
