One of our partners, Jeff Miller, as singer with longtime Phoenix band “box of rocks,” provided the entertainment for this year’s fundraiser in support of preservation efforts for Andean and Asian bears, put on by the Phoenix Chapter of the Arizona Association of Zoo Keepers. The Andean Bear project uses satellite and radio collars to track wild bears and study their behavior. The Asian bear project is designed to save bears used overseas in street entertainment and in bear bile trade. More information can be obtained from the zookeeper website:
Other members of “box of rocks” are Phoenix attorneys John H. Barron III, Steven L. Evans, David Stoll and Awakening Seed teacher Kevin Veillette.
