NFAS Lecture: “From Plankton to Whales- Why our local waters are worth protecting” by Chris Paparo

July 14, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

From Plankton to Whales- Why our local waters are worth protecting
By, Chris Paparo. Presented by North Fork Audubon
Friday July 14th, at 7:30 PM
Peconic Lane Community Center ( The old Peconic School )
1170 Peconic Lane, Peconic NY 11958
With endless stories and photos of fish kills, harmful algal blooms, oil spills, beach closures, etc. filling our daily newsfeeds, it appears that our environment is in a horrific state of “Doom and Gloom”. Although we do face many environmental challenges, this constant bombardment of negativity creates a lack of enthusiasm among local communities when it comes to protecting our environment. Regain your enthusiasm for protecting our marine environment by learning about some of the fascinating marine life that inhabits the waters of Long Island.” For info: 516-526-9095 or info@northforkaudubon.org
Born and raised on Long Island (New York), Chris Paparo has been exploring the wilds of the island for over 30 years. As a wildlife photographer, writer and lecturer, he enjoys bringing public awareness to the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. His passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led him to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton and he currently manages the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.

An award winning member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and the New York State Outdoor Writers Association, Paparo writes monthly columns for On The Water Magazine and The Northforker. Additionally, he is a freelance writer for several other fishing and wildlife related publications. Although his work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.
