Annual Geogrpahy Lecture - Dr. Neil Stronach (OC)


Last night in the BSR, scientist Dr Neil Stronach, Old Columban, cheered us all up in this gloomy November weather with a fine illustrated talk about his time working in national parks in Tanzania, as the Annual Geography Lecture. He showed many slides of wildlife in places such as Serengeti. He also spoke about how he had been inspired while at SCC to pursue a science career by his biology teacher, Bud McMullen, who returned yesterday evening to hear the lecture. Neil Stronach now lives in Cork, and for twelve years was director of Fota Wildlife Park; he is now a consultant in Biodiversity and Wildlife Conservation Management. (From St. Columba's News)
