Our mid year Public Meeting will be held:
YOU ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US!
The event will feature Tamielle Blunt from the University of Queensland.
Tamielle will give a talk on our ever popular annual platypus surveys, the quirky history of the platypus and details of her research. This is guaranteed to be a most interesting presentation!
Throughout her life Tamielle has been lucky enough to volunteer in many different wildlife positions. One of her favourites was with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy where she helped with biodiversity surveys, tracked down numbats and choppered (helicopter) camera traps out to vast rocky outcrops to capture photos of the Sharman’s rock wallaby.
It was her volunteer position in 2014 with cesar Australia on a platypus survey in the Grampians National Park that led her on the path of researching platypus. She completed her Honours program here in Moggill Creek based on the platypus and their associated habitat and dietary requirements. Now her PhD delves further into details of platypus populations in south-east Queensland.
We hope you can join us for this interesting talk on platypus!
