Saving Birds in the Northern Mariana Islands

Susan Gerros

aviculturist holding bird in saipan

In recent years the Aquarium has sent staff members to assist with a project called Marianas Avifauna Conservation, which works to conserve bird populations in the Mariana archipelago. In this lecture Susan Gerros will share stories of her experiences on the island of Saipan, located in the Northern Mariana Islands, where several species of birds are being relocated to help save them from possible extinction. Gerros is a senior aviculturist at the Aquarium and cares for birds and reptiles. She has worked with over a hundred and fifty different species of animals, including reptiles, birds, insects, arachnids, mammals, fish, and crustaceans. Previously she held positions at the San Diego Zoo, the Phoenix Zoo, and the Florida Aquarium.
