Brad Andres, Ph.D.

 Chiloé Island, Chile, is home to thousands of wintering Hudsonian Godwits and Whimbrels, which have been identified as species of high conservation concern in Canada and the U.S. For the past several years, Brad has been involved with a project on Chiloé attaching colored and numbered flags to these birds in order to learn more about their migration routes. Please help us out by
reporting any sightings of the flagged birds. For more information, visit the Shorebird Conservation page.

Brad Andres spends his professional and private time working on projects that address the conservation of birds and their habitats.  Employed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as the National Coordinator of the U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan, his fieldwork has taken him to many beautiful and diverse habitats around the world, from the High Canadian Arctic to southern Chile to western India. 

Back on his home turf in Colorado, he's an active member of Evergreen Audubon and logs many volunteer hours doing what he loves best. He has a long list of publications to his credit and is an engaging speaker, whether his audience includes other scientists or general birding enthusiasts.
