Description

Tuesday 14th November: Sydney Sea Life

Learn about Manly's Little Penguin colony and recent whale research over a glass of wine in the beautiful flower display at The Calyx.

Interested in whales? Vanessa Pirotta is a PhD student studying whales and their conservation at Macquarie University. She will talk about what she has learned whilst conducting her research with an emphasis on her observations of whales in and around Sydney.

Like Little Penguins? Melanie Tyas is a Ranger for the Sydney Harbour National Park. One of her jobs is looking after Manly’s Little Penguin colony. They’re the very last breeding colony of Little Penguins on the New South Wales mainland. Melanie will share her incredibly important task looking after this endangered population.

Plus get hands-on preparing an algae or seaweed specimen to take home! Learn a special type of plant-pressing technique used to preserve and catalogue seaweed specimens, similar to that used by scientists in our National Herbarium of NSW on site.


Every ticket includes a complmentary drink. Food and drink will also be available for purchase.
