Requiem for a Field Station.

Wow. A productive and important field station, shuttered.
"While sleeping, we have lost both a manifestly valuable university research and teaching facility and a jewel in the crown of the Canadian Migration Monitoring Network. Canadian ornithology and conservation is all the poorer for the closing of DMFS and there may very be others to follow if we don’t take immediate action.
This speaks to the critical need for FSMLs to find partners outside the science community, build new relationships, find ways to be relevant to our communities, and make emotional connections. Art programs can help us do that.

So, that when the bean-counters come, we have friends to fight for us.
