We are pleased to announce that Dr Megan Jones will share her firsthand knowledge of Red Fox health on PEI at the monthly meeting of Nature PEI, Tuesday, March 1 at 7:30 pm at Beaconsfield, the Carriage House, in Charlottetown.  This promises to be a topic of high interest to Islanders following a mange outbreak that greatly reduced the fox population in the Charlottetown area.

Dr. Jones is the regional director of the Atlantic node of the Canadian Wildlife Health Cooperative, and is a wildlife pathologist and assistant professor in the Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the Atlantic Veterinary College (AVC), UPEI. 

Covid regulations limit attendance to 50 persons.  Mask-wearing is required throughout the meeting.

To reserve a seat please contact Nicole at:    nicole_murtagh@hotmail.com

 We also plan to have the presentation available both live and recorded for later watching at:  https://www.facebook.com/NaturePEI

 Please bring items for the raffle table, and toonies to buy raffle tickets. It will be possible to renew Nature PEI memberships at the meeting.

With regards,

Jeanne Maki

Director — Programs and Publicity
