Researchable Problems in the Natural Realm
Indulge with me in a bit of fantasy. The year is 1990, and the occasion is the Morris Animal Foundation’s Fifth Annual Conference on self-sustaining populations. I had the good fortune of attending the first conference in this series, held in San Diego in 1985. At that time I was a graduate student at Berkeley. I now have degree in hand and will leave shortly for South India to study the highly endangered lion-tailed macaque. As the first grantee of the new field conservation program of the American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums, I’ve been asked to give a report on my plans to this conference. Funding of the AAZPA field program, as many of you known, has become available through the charging of a small conservation tax on admissions at zoos all over the United States.
