“YOURS FOR WESTERN ALASKA”

(907) 443-5221

A talk show for the birds

Common murres

Last autumn, a high rate of strange deaths was observed with seabirds in Western Alaska (including common murres, pictured).

Ultimately, as KNOM’s news department reported, the bird deaths were linked to a specific disease, avian cholera.

Naturally, many of our listeners had concerns about this phenomenon – concerns that we did our best to address, and hopefully alleviate, in a special call-in show that brought together expert ornithologists and other local scientists. Thank you for making possible this important community service! It’s a show that we know our listeners greatly appreciated.
