ATHENS – University of Georgia researcher Greg Skupien will unravel some of the myths and misconceptions about American alligators at the Oconee Rivers Audubon Society’s next meeting, set for 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 6, at Sandy Creek Nature Center. Skupien, a master’s candidate in UGA’s Odum School of Ecology, will explain how alligators help regulate aquatic and terrestrial environments in their role as ecosystem engineers. The talk will include initial findings from a study on Jekyll Island using population counts, radio telemetry, and education and outreach efforts to reduce human-alligator encounters. A special holiday market starting at 6:30 p.m. will feature Oconee Rivers Audubon T-shirts and sweatshirts, large bags of birdseed, and Audubon gift memberships.
