About the event

Jason Fischer, Avian Conservation Biologist Conservation Team Animals, Science and Environment at Disney's Animal Kingdom will enlighten everyone about Purple Martins.  Regular demonstrations of the nesting habits of Purple Martins at Disney's World Resort are held during nesting seaseon on Wildlife Wednesdays.  Jason's Microsoft and the Emerging Technologies team have set up cameras inside gourds and are using artificial intelligence to record sensitive incubation and feeding activities.  Jason has an exciting way to present the most updated research.  Don't miss this exhilarating opportunity to learn about Purple Martins and where Florida populations are declining.  Our PRAS member, Bill Kimber has been concerned about all of the Purple Martin gourds that were damaged by Hurricane Ian. He has volunteered to reinstall the array at CHEC. You may get inspired to put up your own array in your own yard!
