Event description

Description

All members and spouses/partners of CIBSE in collaboration with Building Services Institutes & Associations are invited to attend The Annual Christmas Luncheon. (So bring along your better half!)



This year we are pleased to have a Guest Speaker from Adelaide Zoo: Tom Whitworth.

Tom began volunteering at Adelaide Zoo in 2001 and then became a guide in 2005. He also helps the Zoo Watch program that provides health and behavioural information on specific animals.Tom enjoys telling people about animals and the role of Zoos SA in their conservation, so volunteering as an Off Site Speaker was a natural addition to his activities.

Graduating in Chemical Engineering from the University of Adelaide, Tom joined the fledgling Air Quality Unit in the then SA Dept. of Public Health in 1975. The variety of work, its challenges and new issues led him to stay in environment protection until retirement.

He was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia, (Public Service Division) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, June 2000 for excellence in public service and innovation in air pollution control.

As an extension of their activities with Adelaide Zoo, Tom and his wife Terri enjoy travelling to see animals in their natural habitat: from Antarctica to Zambia., As part of their travels since retiring theyve volunteered in South Africa and Namibia at establishments involved in wildlife research, wildlife rescue and cheetah breeding despite being by far the oldest involved! Volunteering to help save animals is obviously a passion he is happy to share with you.

Profits from the Luncheon, with personal donations encouraged, to be donated to the Adelaide Zoo.
