Great Presentation at August Meeting

Dr. Chris Draper, director of Performing Animals Welfare Society (PAWS), gave a moving presentation about how his organization is dedicated to rescuing animals from zoos and, performing animal venus. It was interesting to learn that the wild counterparts of these animals do not have the ailments of the rescued animals. The primary component of poor health is stress and confinement. Elephants especially suffer greatly when removed from their social group and the environment that they are perfectly adapted to thrive in.
