At the April pub talk, Shermin de Silva, director of the Uda Walawe Elephant Research Project, will share her experiences studying the shy Asian elephants of Sri Lanka and the people who live alongside them.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the talk begins at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A.

The event is located at the Oregon Zoo Cascade Grill. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
