Scientists spread the word about 2019’s projects

Scientists spread the word about 2019’s projects

Conservation Nation scientists were on hand to represent the five 2019 showcase projects at ZooFari: Bite Night, a benefit for wildlife sponsored by GEICO, on May 16.

 

With presentations and games, they taught guests about their important work all over the world. Some brought activities that highlighted a key component of their research – for example, scientist Alfonso Alonso used an audio game to test guests’ knowledge of animal vocalizations to tie in with an acoustic study of marine mammals off the coast of Peru.

 

Also on hand with an activity was Dr. Don Neiffer, a nationally recognized Smithsonian veterinarian, who taught guests how scientists safely dart wild tapirs to provide them with medical care.
