On November 7, 2015, the Sydney chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology graciously hosted Dr. John Martin, wildlife officer at the heritage-listed Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust and Centennial Parklands. Reflecting his deep-rooted passion for working in the field, Dr. Martin guided the captivated audience on a trek through the swamps of the Centennial Parklands, stopping periodically to discuss key findings of his ongoing work in the conservation of the Gray-headed Flying-fox (Pteropus policephalus), and Black Flying-fox (Pteropus alecto).
