Celebrating Elephants Gala
Sat, May 20, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM PDT
Join us at our Conservation Gala to help African Elephants in the wild. Enjoy Bay Area food and wine and shop in the fabulous Silent Auction. Items incude once in a lifetime behind the scenes encounters with Oakland Zoo animals, restaurant and winery certificates, animal art work and much more! All proceeds support Amboseli Trust for Elephants.
This year our featured speaker is Christine Brown-Nunez, PhD, a human dimensions of conservation specialist. Dr. Brown-Nunez will talk about her research in Kenya with Cynthia Moss at the Amboseli Research camp. Cynthia’s ongoing 40+ years of research and conservation efforts have protected African elephants from the ivory trade and provided the world with valuable information about the intelligence, family life, and communication of the African elephant. Through Celebrating Elephants we have raised over $300,000 for Amboseli Trust for Elephants.
Help Celebrate twenty one years of Oakland Zoo's Action for Elephants- fundraising for conservation, champions of welfare, and campaigning for protective legislation.
