Madagascar topic of birding talk

Posted: Friday, November 15, 2013 2:00 am

Madagascar is the fourth largest island in the world and hosts some of the rarest wildlife species that can be found anywhere — in fact, some 90 percent of the wildlife is found nowhere else in the world. 

Pete Loncar of Montrose, who spent over a month there, and neighboring islands, exploring the country and its wildlife, will be giving a presentation on his travels in the country on Wednesday at the Bill Heddles Recreation Center in Delta.

“Both the wildlife and the country and the people were just fascinating,” Loncar said. “I was able to see over 200 species of birds and some 35 percent of these can only be seen in Madagasgar.”
