We are very fortunate at DRAS to have an organization with a bank account and a program person who is a zoo curator, which gives him an inside track within the scientific community. This year we have had Dr. Paul Loiselle for our banquet and aregular monthly meeting, and now Dr. Anton Laboj, who is here from Europe at that time. We have had some other good speakers, although they are not as well known.
