2020 CASIOPA Webinar #2
Thursday March 26 10:00-11:00 EST
CHANGE OF SPEAKER

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Dr. Jones will unfortunately not be able to present a webinar this week.  Stay tuned- his talk will be rescheduled for a later date.

We are pleased to be able to offer another event at the same date and time (Thursday March 26th at 10am).


Note that if you were already registered for Dr.Jones' talk, there is no need to re-register.  

Thursday's webinar will now feature the work of Dr. Cory Toth, Wildlife Biologist with the Canadian Wildlife Service.  Dr. Toth will discuss the growing problem of artificial light at night for animals, particularly bats and nocturnal insects, as well as a new method that could mitigate its effects for humans and non-human animals, alike.


Cory Toth is a biologist with a background in behavioral, community, and spatial ecology, with a past focus on birds and bats. He completed his BSc and Masters in Biology at Queen’s University studying the singing behaviour of black-capped chickadees. In 2011, he moved to New Zealand to undertake his PhD on the mating and foraging behaviours of the endangered lesser short-tailed bat at the University of Auckland. After finishing his PhD in 2016 he completed a short postdoctoral study at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama, investigating the foraging behaviours of frog-eating bats, before moving to Boise, Idaho for a two-year postdoc at Boise State University investigating how sensory disturbances affect bird, bat, and insect communities. Since July of 2019 he has been working as a Wildlife Biologist in the Priority Species Division of the Canadian Wildlife Service.
