2018 Annual Banquet

The 2018 annual banquet was held at the Denver Athletic Club. Dr. Marc Bekoff, professor emeritus of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, gave a fascinating talk about “The Animal’s Agenda: Freedom, Compassion, Coexistence, and Hope in the ‘Rage of Inhumanity.”’ The science of animal well-being, compassionate conservation, and personal rewilding offer viable solutions for coming to the rescue of other animals. “The time has come —- indeed, it is long overdue —- to use what we know about the fascinating and diverse inner lives of other animals on their behalf.”
