Speaking at TEDxCincy conference next week

It’s been a busy few weeks since I last posted. I was invited to give a talk at the TEDxCincy conference coming up next week. So I’ve been busy preparing for that in addition to my regular duties.

The conference is all about sharing ideas worth spreading and the theme is passion. The idea I’ll be sharing is that personal experiences with wildlife can create the emotional connections necessary to inspire conservation action, which I’ll be doing via my personal story and, of course, featuring how the Zoo provides personal experiences and leads to conservation action such as cell phone recycling.

Wish me luck and I’ll let you know how it goes!

Here's the picture of me (and Skittles, the rainbow boa, that will be in the conference program.
