*Note: This event meets in Classroom C at the Prospect Park Zoo. Please see
below for details.*

*Tuesday April 23 7PM*
*Tom Gray Presents: The Amazing Birds of South East Asia*

Tom Gray is the Director of Science for the conservation organization
Wildlife Alliance. He recently moved to upper Manhattan, with Fort Tyron
Park slowly becoming his local patch, after 15 years living and working in
South East Asia. This talk will focus on some of the remarkable birds of
South East Asia, particularly Cambodia, and the conservation efforts
focused to conserve them in the face of the region’s rapidly growing
economies and shrinking wildernesses. Tom will describe expeditions looking
for wintering shorebirds, including spoon-billed sandpiper, in the Gulf of
Thailand and to the peaks of the Cardamom Mountains searching for endemic
partridges and laughing thrush. The talk culminates in encounters with the
majestic giant ibis – one of the worlds most threatened and evolutionary
distinct species.


*An important note about meeting location:* Due to scheduling conflicts at
the library, our April and May meetings will be held at the Prospect Park

Please enter at the service gate.  The service gate is located south of the
zoo's main entrance on Flatbush Avenue, but just north of, and practically
next to the Leffert's house. A zoo security guard will be posted there till
7:15 to allow late comers in. If you arrive late, you may not be able to
get onto zoo grounds. Please be on time for a 7:00pm start.

When the meeting concludes, members will be escorted out together to
Flatbush Avenue. Zoo security is on grounds to keep us safe at all times.

Our meeting will take place in the "C" building classroom. It has
accessible bathrooms down the hallway. After walking into the service gate,
you will continue walking straight, through a large gate, until you are on
the actual zoo path (~ 75 ft), turn right on the path and walk toward a
large octopus sculpture. Turn left under the Octopus, this will put you on
the Discovery Trail (where the pond is). Immediately on your right is the
entrance to the C building.

Parking is available on Flatbush Avenue. Transit directions can be found

We hope to see you there for this exciting program.
