Conservation Connection in Iraq

Long time Columbus Audubon member and birder, Major Randel Rogers, did a tour of duty in Iraq from 2008 – 2009. During this time, he not only became the unofficial naturalist for his unit, but also was an active advocate for conservation in this rapidly changing country.

While in Iraq, Randy published a nature newsletter called Al-Asad au Natural for his colleagues, and has graciously agreed to share it with Columbus Audubon Web site readers.
