Public learns more about wildlife

MARQUETTE — Today, Northern Michigan University had a science lesson for all who was able to join.

Northern Michigan University Fisheries and Wildlife Association hosted the Birds of Prey event Friday in Jamrich Hall. This event helps people learn more about animals including birds, turtles, rabbits and more. They went over different ways to go about helping or interacting with an injured animal.

“We really enjoy these events; we have several students that are interested in doing wildlife education and rehab as a career,” said F.W.A. Vice President, Danielle Dershmen. “So this offers a lot to them and allows them to see what those sorts of events are like. So it offers something to our students and then in general I think these are great opportunities for the public to get educated about birds of prey.”

This event has been an annual event for the last five years but this time they switched the date to help give the community a better chance to get the experience of meeting birds up close.
