We could reschedule the talk by Rebecca Spindler (Taronga Zoo) in our ‘Conservation Conversation’ series!
The new details are:
Last month, five of us attended the Society for Conservation Biology Oceania Conference in Suva, Fiji. David, Monica, Oliver, Sandra and Simone (in alphabetical order, not order of importance ) were looking forward to networking with active members of other SCB Chapters as well as officials from the Oceania section and the global society.

We’ll meet on the lawn next to the Chish N Fips shop in Goldstein Reserve, Coogee, Beach, around 10am on Saturday morning.
We are now raising funds for our conservation projects by selling Entertainment Books for any city in Australia or New Zealand through the link below:
Entertainment™ Memberships include over $20,000 worth of valuable 2-for-1 and up to 50% offers from many of the best restaurants, arts, attractions, hotel accommodation, travel and much more!
Field hands are needed to assist with forest biomass surveys, data entry and camp duties for Native Forest Protection Projects being set-up under the CFI. Native Forest Protection Projects involve protecting forests that would otherwise be cleared for agriculture. Intensive field surveys are required to estimate the biomass of project areas in order to determine the magnitude of CO2 abatement.
ATTENTION! Unfortunately, the speaker for our upcoming seminar fell sick and we will have to cancel the talk for now. We will try to reschedule soon.
Our next talk in the ‘Conservation Conversation’ series is coming up soon! This time, Rebecca Spindler (Taronga Zoo) will be talking about Taronga’s role in conservation.
The Australian Wetlands, Rivers and Landscapes Centre (AWRLC) through the School of Biological Earth and Environmental Sciences (BEES), in collaboration with Taronga Conservation Society Australia, is seeking to appoint a conservation biologist, specialising in endocrinology, to undertake research, teaching and postgraduate supervision within one of Australia’s most dynamic research environments.
The appointee will be expected to integrate a research program in endocrinology focusing on species, populations and ecosystems, and will be based between UNSW and Taronga Western Plains Zoo in Dubbo. There will be teaching responsibilities in Sydney and in Dubbo.
