Additional Program Information

Join us Saturday May 17th for a special presentation by Dr. Vicki Fishlock, Resident Scientist for the Amboseli Trust for Elephants. Dr. Fishlock joined the Amboseli research team in 2011 to study the social resilience of female elephants following a devastating drought in 2009. She will share some of her findings in her ongoing research looking at the fascinating social dynamics in the lives of female elephants, and how these individual relationships shape the success of families. She will explain how age, experience and leadership influence the survival of calves and families in the sometimes difficult life of an elephant. Hear stories of success and struggle of some of the magnificent elephants of the Amboseli plains.

  • The evening will include a reception, presentation and silent auction
