    Event Description:
    Wenatchee River Institute brings Birds of Borneo to Science on Tap! to the Wenatchee Valley Brewing Co. Brewery on Tue., Oct. 15, 6-7pm. Suzanne Tomassi, Wenatchee Valley ornithologist and Research Scientist with the University of Sheffield, UK, will give a presentation about her 10-year study in Borneo’s Danum Valley. Perhaps the oldest rainforest on Earth, the remote and unforgettable Danum Valley is a biodiversity hotspot. “I love talking about Danum Valley because most people don't realize such a place exists. When you step into this deep, ancient forest, you can almost feel it breathing around you. Every day you encounter a human-like primate face peering at you through the trees, or a silent cat creeping by, and always a cacophony of birds and insects. It's a wild Disneyland!” tells Tomassi. Tomassi’s fieldwork uses birds as a means to measure wildlife responses to both natural and human-driven phenomena. Come learn about this ancient forest and see photos of the spectacular wildlife that make it their home. She is a Professional Wetland Scientist and Certified Wildlife Biologist, holds a Master of Science degree in Fish and Wildlife Biology, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology. There will be a raffle of WRI and Wenatchee Valley Brewery goods following the presentation. All proceeds help WRI programming continue and grow.
