    I want to attend because I’ve admired these beautiful species since the days when they weee thought of as vermin, which I could never understand. They are so beautiful and amazing.

    The Painted dogs are mine and my partners favorite animals to hang with at the Oregon Zoo. We have not had the honor of seeing the pups as they were not old enough to be out the last time we were there. We would love to attend a “talk” to learn more about our favorites!!! And how to keep them around for generations to enjoy in the future. Thank you.
