Wednesday, December 6, 2023 - 3:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. ESTRegister Here


  • Patrick Donnelly, Intermountain West Joint Venture and the US Fish and Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Program


Climate change is driving inequity in wetland loss through functional declines. An improved understanding of these trends provides important insight for wetland managers and adaptive strategies needed to offset accelerating losses. This presentation will discuss recent findings from a pilot study examining disproportionate impacts on semi-permanent wetlands and migratory waterbirds in Oregon and California. Results identify emerging bottlenecks and potential challenges to wetland conservation in increasingly water-limited landscapes.  


Patrick DonnellyPatrick Donnelly, Intermountain West Joint Venture and the US Fish and Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Program is a research scientist for the Intermountain West Joint Venture and the US Fish and Wildlife Service Migratory Bird Program. Patrick leads and conducts partner-based research from the University of Montana Wildlife Biology Program in Missoula, Montana. His work focuses on climate change and waterbird conservation solutions through science developed to increase our understanding of continental wetland networks and emerging ecological constraints to avian migration in Western North America.
