On Saturday, March 11 Dr. Mack returns to speak on “Cassowaries and Other Animals of New Guinea,” with a venture into the strange, wondrous, and dangerous animal kingdom of Papua New Guinea, home of kangaroos that climb trees, the world’s largest butterfly, and a bird so beautiful that the “bird of paradise” flower was named after it.
