Meetings for 2018

2 August 2018

Short talk - Emma Lindsay: Australian Birds. Emma, a contemporary artist, will talk about studio research undertaken for her Extinction Project (2016) on extinct Australian bird specimens and her most recent exhibiton project for Artspace Mackay's Great Barrier Reef | Anthropocene Project. Emma will take us on a photographic journey and recount stories regarding specimens and live birds she encountered and painted between 2012-2017.

Long talk - Richard Noske: From the bottom of the world to the equator in 30 days - high octane birding in South America. Three months ago Richard shamelessly exploited his non-birding son's wish to have a holiday in South America to tick off some special birds. These included flamingos in Bolivia, penguins and swans in Patagonia, and the Umbrellabird in Ecuador, not to menton a plethora of hummingbirds. A puma capped it all off splendidly!
