They are going to speak with you about how we are cared for whern we are aliveor dead, included in your decorative artworks, the laws you have to be aware of when we are transported and shown in you museum or zoo. They are also going to touch on some of the technology that is used to track us or keep tabs on us in their collections. If we get to travel, what is needed before we leave and upon arrivals and any of the forms that they have to fill out. Please come to hear about all this on October 19th at 3:45in the Halsey Room of the Doubletree Hotel
