Last Name:
Josh Nove, 23
IPSWICH Josh Nove, 23, of Ipswich, died accidentally Thursday at Mother Goose Lake in the Becharof Lake/Alaska Peninsula National Wildlife Refuge.
At the time, he was leading a group of volunteers who were involved in a bird-banding project. He stepped away from the group to get a closer look at two tern chicks, and fell into a hidden sinkhole where he quickly drowned.
After graduating from Ipswich High School as salutatorian and from Amherst College magna cum laude in 1995 as a biology major, Mr. Nove worked as a research assistant on a number of ornithological projects that took him from Belize to Alabama to Mississippi to Louisiana to New Mexico. He also spent four months at the North Ronaldsay Bird Observatory on the most remote of the Orkney Islands off the northern tip of Scotland.
For the past several summers he had been involved with the Quebec-Labrador Foundation of Ipswich on the Quebec North Shore, where he prepared an ecotourism guide to the area and a bilingual bird list.
His intense interest in birds and natural history began when he was a young child, as did his interest in drawing birds. This latter interest expanded to include photography and he amassed a collection of several thousand slides of the birds and people he encountered in his travels.
His favorite local haunts were the marshes and thickets of Plum Island and the rocky coastline of Cape Ann, where he would spend stormy winter days with his spotting scope looking for unusual species blown in by the strong winds.
He was a patient and careful observer of birds and enthusiastically shared his knowledge with others.
He is survived by his parents, Eleanor Nove of Newburyport and John Nove of Ipswich; and his grandmother, Jane Nove of Ipswich.
A fund in his name is being established at the Quebec-Labrador Foundation to support its summer intern program.
