ESO Lecture October 1st
The first lecture of the ESO's 2005/6 season will be held on October 1st at Majan College at 7pm. It will be an illustrated presentation on the Conservation of the Houbara Bustard. This bird is in danger of extinction within the next 20 years due to excess hunting, both by falconers in Arabia and trainers in Pakistan and Iran who use them to train falcons.
This lecture will be presented by Yasser Al Kharusi who is a biologist at Jaaluni (the Oryx project). Should be an interesting presentation which tells a story that stretches from Oman to the breeding grounds of migrant birds in Central Asia. The lecture will be in English.
Doors open at 7pm. Lecture will begin at 7.30pm.
As usual entry is open to the public, you don't have to be a member to come. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm if you are coming so that we can get an idea of the number to prepare for.
