Program: “Robots, Drones and the Science of Studying Prairie-Chickens”

Date & Time: Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
Description: Dr. Jackie Augustine, Executive Director, Audubon of Kansas, is a behavioral ecologist who studies the mating behaviors of wild birds. While attending Kansas State University for her doctorate, she fell in love with prairie-chickens, and has now been studying them for nearly two decades. Her current research utilizes robots to study how males attract mates in Greater and Lesser Prairie-Chickens, two declining species whose ranges overlap in western Kansas. Another project is determining whether drones could be used to survey for prairie-chickens in the future. Dr. Augustine will describe what fascinates her about prairie-chickens and will include videos of robots and drones in action.
