On the 10th of September, Rebecca Spindler from the Taronga Conservation Society Australia gave a talk for our Conservation Conversations seminar series! Her talk was very entertaining, full of funny stories and awesome pictures. It was very interesting and inspirational to hear about all the conservation projects that Taronga is involved with.

Last Sunday, Sydney SCB was fundraising at the SIMS Harbour Hike finish line at Clifton Gardens Reserve.

Taronga Zoo was so kind to let us share their Zoomobile space, so that we could be present at the hike’s finish line. We met lots of people that are interested in our projects and managed to fundraise enough money to build 5 nestboxes for our Little Fairy Penguin project!

We were really happy to see that a lot of people decided to join us on our Coastal walk and whale watching trip! It was awesome weather (even though the forecast predicted rain) and we enjoyed the opportunity to get to know new people. Even though the sea was pretty choppy, we spotted a couple of whales along the way.

Everyone seemed to be happy with the trip and we are already looking forward to organising the next event. If you have any wishes or suggestions for fun walks or any kinds of events, please feel free to contact us anytime!

Check out some of the photos from the day…
