Mammals of Botswana Featured

Our May speaker will be Dr. Charles Wyttenbach, Professor Emeritus of Biological Sciences at KU since 1997 at this month's JAS meeting, which will be held May 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Trinity Luthern Fellowship Hall. Dr. Wyttenback and his daughter, Ann, spent nearly two weeks in Botswana in September, 2014, as two of a group so small that they shared a guide with at most only one other couple. This afforded superb photo opportunities. Their trip yielded photos of 29 mammals and nearly 80 bird species. This program will showcase the mammals; next spring we'll be treated to the Birds of Botswana!
