SA & Bexar Audubon Annual Dinner

at the San Antonio Zoo Beastro

The Future of Bird Conservation

featuring George Fenwick, President, American Bird Conservancy

The world is changing rapidly and most of those changes bode poorly for birds and their habitats. But the news is not all bad.

Conservationists are working more collaboratively and ornithologists and other scientists are expanding our knowledge and inventing technologies that are helping us improve the world for birds. Dr. Fenwick will fill us in on new ideas and advances in the world of bird conservation.

Guests can enter the zoo at 6:00 PM through the front gate (the names of those who have purchased tickets will be on a list) and stroll through the zoo to the Bistro for dinner at 7:00 PM . Dr. Fenwick will speak right after dinner. Tickets for the dinner are $25 per person and include Zoo Admission, an Italian Buffet and drinks.
