Nearly three decades have passed since its first victims were discovered on DeGray Lake. Since that time, the “eagle killer that lives on hydrilla” has claimed unknown numbers of bald eagles, coots, owls, fish, and turtles, to name a prominent few species. Thanks to the detective work of a handful of persistent scientists spanning multiple continents, the culprit – “an insidious combination of factors” – has finally been identified. Live from Germany, Dr. Timo Niedermeyer, professor at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenburg will share his firsthand account of the saga as one of the leading scientists responsible for solving this previously unsolved mystery.
