AFE 2022: Bird Friendly® Certified Coffee: Conserving Birds One Cup at a Time

February 10 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

Did you know that the coffee you drink can have an impact on birds in Alaska? The Smithsonian Bird Friendly® certification does more than any other certification to conserve habitat for birds and other wildlife on coffee farms. During this talk, Bird Friendly® Program Manager Kirstin Hill will describe the link between coffee and conservation and share what makes Bird Friendly certification the gold-standard in biodiversity protection. Callie Gesmundo, wildlife biologist for the US Fish & Wildlife Service in Anchorage will outline opportunities for Alaskans to get involved in the movement to “Drink Bird Friendly®.” Your coffee is stronger than you think!
