Florida Gulf Coast University’s globe trotting ornithologist – Dr. Jerry Jackson is back on the ground in Southwest Florida this week. Jackson is a leading authority on the Ivory Billed Woodpecker – a bird which may or may not be extinct. He spent the first part of his summer vacation this year as a volunteer for “Global Explorers” a non-profit that takes middle and high school students to far flung wild places. He spoke with WGCU’s Valerie Alker.
Dr. Jerry Jackson is the host of “Out with wild things” heard weekday mornings at 7:19 on WGCU. He’ll be back in the classroom at FGCU when the fall semester begins August 20th.
