If you are in the vicinity of Illinois, I’ve got a cool event to pass on: a fundraising dinner to help benefit Dr. Irene Pepperberg’s work on intelligence and communication in Grey parrots. Go see Dr. Pepperberg talk about her research or participate in a meet-and-greet. Proceeds go to the Alex Foundation, and all details can be found at either this flyer or on the foundation’s website.
Dr. Pepperberg gave a symposia talk at the University of Michigan last month and I really enjoyed hearing her speak, I encourage you all to go to the event (hey, its for a good cause!).
