Science on Tap! Birds of Borneo

October 15, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Science on Tap! Birds of Borneo, Suzanne Tomassi at Wenatchee Valley Brewing Co. Brewery

Wenatchee River Institute brings Birds of Borneo to Science on Tap! to the Wenatchee Valley Brewing Co. Brewery on Tue., Oct. 15, 6-7pm. Suzanne Tomassi, Wenatchee Valley ornithologist and Research Scientist with the University of Sheffield, UK, will give a present about her 10-year study in Borneo’s Danum Valley.

Perhaps the oldest rainforest on Earth, the remote and unforgettable Danum Valley is a biodiversity hotspot. “I love talking about Danum Valley because most people don’t realize such a place exists. When you step into this deep, ancient forest, you can almost feel it breathing around you. Every day you encounter a human-like primate face peering at you through the trees, or a silent cat creeping by, and always a cacophony of birds and insects. It’s a wild Disneyland!” tells Tomassi.

Tomassi’s fieldwork uses birds as a means to measure wildlife responses to both natural and human-driven phenomena. Come learn about this ancient forest and see photos of the spectacular wildlife that make it their home. She is a Professional Wetland Scientist and Certified Wildlife Biologist, holds a Master of Science degree in Fish and Wildlife Biology, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

There will be a raffle of WRI and Wenatchee Valley Brewery goods following the presentation. All proceeds help WRI programming continue and grow.
