Event Details

About the talk

Wildlife crime is an increasingly lucrative trade with rare animals and plants, and products made from them, fetching a pretty price in illegal markets. Detecting and successfully prosecuting offenders calls for wildlife forensics – the application of genetic technology to assist law enforcement with suspected cases of wildlife crime.

Hear the Museum’s Dr Rebecca Johnston talk about wildlife crime, the techniques used for different types of identification and some of the many examples from the Australian Museum’s case book.

Doors open at 6.30pm for cheese and wine. The lecture will begin promptly at 7.00pm.

About the speaker

 Rebecca's research career began in the fascinating field of Queensland fruit fly genetics (Bactrocera sp.). She then studied and worked for several years in the incredible world of social insect genetics where she studied molecular systems of ants, honey bees and wasps. Rebecca has a special interest in Wildlife forensics and has worked on many high profile cases including Birdstrikes and Sharf finning.
