      The Rare, Shy, and Overlooked Critters of Indiana: Endangered, Threatened and Rarely Seen Hoosier Wildlife

      In my experience, people in Indiana tend to underestimate the diversity of wildlife to be found in Indiana, but there are a variety of very special animals to be found in the state that are either rare or rarely seen by most citizens. We'd talk about the lives and status of our endangered bats like the Indiana bat and Northern long-eared bats, other unique species like Franklin's ground squirrel, least weasels, star-nosed moles, plains pocket gopher, swamp rabbits, common species rarely seen do to their nocturnal habits like southern flying squirrel, amphibians like hellbenders, mudpuppies, the kaleidoscope of red, green and blue-spotted salamanders, reptiles like ornate box turles , eastern massasuga, alligator snapping turtles, birds like loggerhead shrike, least terns, American woodcock, Kirtlands and Cerulean warblers--there are many to pick from. In addition to highlighting the diversity of wildlife in the state, the purpose here would also be to highlight the causes of many of these species declines (habitat loss, fragmentation, pollution) and the work of groups like the Nature Conservancy to protect them. Join Joseph Eisinger for this interesting and exciting webinar on November 21st at 2 pm CST. Registration is $5. The zoom meeting link for this webinar will be sent out the week before this program.
