Special Guest: Rick Barongi
In January, the Sierra Club takes an in-depth look at the conservation efforts for some the world's most amazing creatures:
elephants and rhinoceros. Renown zoologist Rick Barongi, Executive Vice President of Conservation at the Houston Zoo, has
spent countless hours in Africa studying these magnificent creatures, and is an expert in their conservation. When he was
the Director of the Houston Zoo and designer of Disney's Animal Kingdom, he was well known for his knowledge in zoological
park management and exhibit design, but his passion is conservation of the world's great creatures. Come visit with us on
January 8 at 7:30 PM and see that passion. From working in zoos from coast-to-coast, to extensive travels in Africa and
South America, Rick has unique experience and insight to share. Best of all, he will share his insight in a special
presentation free and open to the public.
(Social period begins at 7:00 PM. Main program begins at 7:30 PM.)
Location: Pecore Hall of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 1805 West Alabama (at the corner of West Alabama
