Where: Suraj Indian Cuisine
2550 El Camino Real, Redwood City, CA 94061

When: Thursday, November 19th, 6:30 – 9:00 pm (Note: to avoid conflict with the Thanksgiving holiday, the meeting has been moved up a week from the normal meeting date)

Why: To network with local conservation biology students and professionals, learn something new about on-the-ground application of conservation biology in central California, hear about upcoming programs and field trips, have a great meal, and have fun!

The business meeting will start at 7:00 pm with dinner at 7:30 pm. The program starts at 8:00 pm.

Please RSVP by November 16th; dinner will be a selection of vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods, priced around $15-$20 per person.

Program: “The Effects of Translocation on African Elephants”. Our featured dinner speaker will be Noa Pinter-Wollman, a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University's biology department. Noa received her PhD from UC Davis for her work on the behavior of translocated African elephants and is currently studying the behavior of harvester ants. Her presentation will focus on the behavioral and physiological response of African elephants to translocation and she will discuss the use of behavioral data to inform wildlife management actions.
