Why have thousands of dead seabirds washed ashore on Pacific Northwest beaches in recent years? Citizen scientists are pitching in to help solve the mystery. Join Julia Parrish, Ph.D., at the August Queen Anne Science Café to discuss how the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) brings together regular citizens and marine scientists to monitor seabird populations, prevent future die-offs, and inform larger research on topics like climate change.

The Queen Anne Science Café is your opportunity to talk with researchers about science and technology research—all in the comfortable atmosphere of a local pub.

Queen Anne Science Café is held on the first Tuesday of each month. Did you miss a café and want to hear the discussion?
