Storrs Campus
Biology/Physics Building, Room 130

The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History at UConn presents “From Poultry to Penguins! What Came After UConn,” a talk by Mystic Aquarium’s Laurie Macha, Josh Davis, and Eric Fox. The lecture will be held at the Biology/Physics Building, Room 130, on the UConn Storrs Campus, Saturday, November 12 at 3 pm.

Mystic Aquarium staff Laurie Macha, Josh Davis, and Eric Fox all began their careers working with endangered African penguins shortly after graduating from the University of Connecticut with Animal Science degrees. Through activities such as oil spill cleanups, rehabilitation work, and interactive programming all three have been integral in Mystic Aquarium's African penguin conservation efforts both in Mystic, Connecticut and abroad in South Africa. They will share the paths they took to their careers and why their work is so important to a species threatened with extinction.

This program is free and advanced registration is not required. To contact the Museum, visit http://www.cac.uconn.edu/mnhcurrentcalendar.html or call 860-486-4460.
