This past November, two tiger twins were born at Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo. They are rare, endangered Siberian tigers whose species in the wild have just under 500 animals left.
A group of men and women from around Fairfield County have banded together to support the endangered species programs that the Beardsley Zoo is part of and they have organized an Endangered Species Gala that will take place on November 3 at the Patterson Club in Fairfield. The committee is co-chaired by Kathy MacGhee of Shelton and Cathy Fell of Fairfield.
The guest speaker for this event will be world class explorer, Richard Weiss. He is also an Emmy award winning producer and author of the book, “Born to Explore: How to be a Backyard Adventurer.”
