Ridgway’s Rail is a species that Golden Gate Audubon Society has worked hard to protect over the decades, fighting to preserve and then helping restore its habitat in locations like Oakland’s Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline. They are presenting this speaker event as part of their year-long Centennial celebration.
The Ridgway’s Rail, a federally-listed endangered species dependent on San Francisco Bay tidal marshes, is making a comeback after a sharp decline a decade ago. The population is increasing due in part to large-scale tidal restoration projects happening throughout the Bay.
Julian Wood is the San Francisco Bay Program Leader at Point Blue Conservation Science (formerly PRBO). He works to advance wetland-dependent bird conservation by leading innovative research and informing on-the-ground restoration and management.
