Saving Species: An Inside Look at the Future of Zoos and Wildlife Conservation

Join Beth Cate and Robert Shumaker, president and CEO of the Indianapolis Zoo, for an in-depth discussion of the role that zoos play in global wildlife conservation, and an examination of the major conservation initiatives by the Indianapolis Zoo.  

Participants will leave Bloomington at 8:30 a.m. on Monday, May 11, and travel to the Indianapolis Zoo. They will meet and talk with Shumaker and Cate from 10–11 a.m., and then visit with and learn all about the majestic African elephants. Depending on the number of participants, we may divide the group and alternate between visiting with the elephants and enjoying the Zoo grounds. We will leave the Zoo at 1 p.m. for the drive back to Bloomington, stopping at Gray Brothers Cafeteria along the way for lunch on your own.

NOTE: No refunds after 5 p.m. on Friday, April  17, 2020.
