On Monday 30th May, 2016 the Ladies Committee held their luncheon with 30 members and their guests in attendance.
Rebecca Spindler, manager of research and conservation at Toronga Zoo, was the guest speaker.
Before joining the Zoo, Rebecca spent five breeding seasons at the Walong Nature Reserve in China, working with the Giant Panda. She then went with colleagues throughout America and worked at improving the health and conservation of carnivores, particularly the Jaguar.
Rebecca is indeed a dedicated and caring conservationist and those in attendance were most impressed by her talk.
Chef Rebecca once again presented an excellent meal of canapés, two course lunch and beverages.
The Ladies Committee next luncheon is on Monday 25th July, 2016. The guest speaker will be Libby Christie, Executive Director of the Australian Ballet, who started the position in 2013 and prior acted as CEO for the Australia Council.
The Ladies Committee looks forward to having lunch with you.
