More than Monarchs: Migratory Insects and Coastal Conservation
Numerous scarce habitats may be found along the coast of Rhode Island, each with unique animals and plants found only in these small pockets and narrow strips. But coastal habitats also contribute importantly to global insect populations because insects from our coastal fields, ponds, and dunes travel annually across continents to stay in contact with scarce resources and beat winter’s cold. Monarch butterflies are only the best-known example, others include other butterflies, dragonflies, and even flies. David Gregg, director of the Rhode Island Natural History Survey and amateur entomologist will describe migratory insects that pass back and forth through Rhode Island, how their travels differ from those of classic migrators such certain birds or mammals, and what climate change might mean for these tiny travelers.


Active SKLT membership and advance registration is required due to limited space.
