- Paul Englemayer - Land-sea conservation issues and strategies: marine reserves, forage fish and the Marbled Murrelet
The natural wonders of Oregonís complex marine food web will be the subject of Paul Engelmeyerís talk about efforts to protect forage fish, the prey base for seabirds, as well as the unique habitat requirements for the ESA listed Marbled Murrelet and update the current status of Oregonís marine reserves.
Since 1990, Paul has managed the Ten Mile Creek Sanctuary, near Yachats, for the Audubon Society of Portland. The sanctuary resulted from a partnership of the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Audubon, the local community and the Siuslaw National Forest to develop a basin-wide protection and restoration program. Their efforts led to a national award in 2005. Paul also serves on Oregonís Ocean Policy Advisory Council (OPAC), which has developed a system of marine reserves and protected areas for Oregonís coast, the MidCoast Watersheds Council, which is protecting and restoring over 1 million acres in the Coast Range Bioregion, and the Siuslaw Forest Stewardship program which received the 2010 Two Chiefsí Partnership Award, a major award recognizing exemplary conservation efforts across public and private land.
