Event description
Go on a spider walk with Dr Mike Rix, Queesnland Museum

About this event

This activity is part of the Tiny Giants: Mary's Amazing Invertebrates program.

Go on a walk with lead researcher Dr Mike Rix, Principal Curator (Arachnology) and Research Fellow at Queensland Museum.

Meeting at the Outdoor Classroom and venturing into the rainforest tracks, Dr Mike will share his knowledge of spiders: their evolution, diversity and why it's so important to protect them.

During Tiny Giants, Dr Mike Rix will be undertaking a detailed survey of the spider and other arachnid fauna of Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve. As part of this, he will be focusing on a number of spider groups of particular scientific or conservation significance, including trapdoor spiders, pelican spiders and other rainforest species with potentially limited distributions on the Blackall Range.

He has dedicated most of his career to working with collections and to taxonomically documenting the remarkable spider faunas of Australia and the other Austral continents, and has described 230 species in eight families.
