Clive Pinnock at Everglades Day
In the October and November issues of the KITE Clive wrote background articles entitled Wildlife Survival Strategies Part one and Part two. In the first he explains the animal food chain and how plants and animals fit into this chain. In the second he explains how behavioral traits and anatomical features fit into animals’ survival strategies. Special emphasis this month will be on migration as a survival strategy. Growing up in Jamaica Clive had a strong interest in nature. “I was born into it!” His memories from early childhood are of exploring and observing the natural world around him in Jamaica. After moving to America as a teenager, he entered City College of New York, graduating with a biology degree. He worked for the National Park Service for 15 years, serving first at Jamaica Bay (Long Island) National Wildlife Refuge and then at Glen Canyon National Recreation Center in Arizona where part of his duties included monitoring the peregrine falcons.
