Come join us at 6:30 pm for our regular weekly meeting and to hear Dr. Mark Plotkin, co-founder and President of the Amazon Conservation Team (ACT).

Background on the Amazon Conservation Team:  ACT was founded in 1996 by Dr. Mark Plotkin and conservationist Liliana Madrigal. By partnering with indigenous tribes throughout the Amazon to map, manage, and protect the rainforest, ACT ensures the successful protection of the biodiversity, culture, and health of the Amazon's ecosystem-the flora, fauna, and the indigenous people. In March 2008, the Amazon Conservation Team received the Skoll Foundation's prestigious Award for Social Entrepreneurship. Recently, ACT was named a 2010 Tech Awards Laureate by Silicon Valley's Tech Museum for their work in Brazil to advance the technology of field data collection in partnership with indigenous communities.
