Dorian Anderson Biking For Birds joins host Mardi Dickinson on location in southern Connecticut in a impromtu interview together as he takes a short break to refuel and rest from biking and birding fundrasier. This is the first leg of Dorian’s Journey across the county. We will get into the birds Dorian has seen, type of equipment and gear he has onboard to situations Dorian has encountered plus much more.
Biking for Birds is a year-long environmental odyssey aimed at protecting wild birds and their habitats. During this twelve-month endeavor, which commenced January 1 from Cape Ann, Massachusetts., geneticist Dr. Dorian Anderson, a Philadelphia native, hopes to see and photograph 600 species of birds while pedaling his bike 15,000 miles across the country.
To further eliminate a carbon footprint during his travels, Dr. Anderson will not have a support vehicle to assist him; everything he needs will be carried on Dorian’s back and his bicycle. This Big Year permutation will certainly add an unprecedented level of adventure to the endeavor, and it should set a new standard for environmentally sustainable travel.
