CANCELLED – Monthly Meeting: Rodney Fuentes on The Monarch Ultra
April 8 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
The Monarch Ultra is a relay run that followed one of the world’s longest insect migrations: the migration of the monarch butterflies. On September 21, 2019, the run started in Peterborough, Ontario, and arrived 47 days later in Macheros, Mexico. Rodney will be sharing the story behind the run, his experiences during the trip and what he learned along the way in terms of monarch conservation, habitat loss, and citizen actions to save our pollinators.
Rodney Fuentes is a documentary filmmaker with a background in eco-tourism and nature exploration. Rodney has experience exploring the neotropical rainforest and guiding birdwatching tours in his native country, Venezuela. He has worked and/or volunteered for several NGOs including the Venezuelan Audubon Society, Phelps Ornithological Museum, Bird Studies Canada, and the Peterborough Field Naturalist Club. Rodney lives in Peterborough.
