Event description

Description

Cities are thought of as barren landscapes, the perfect film location for cowboy-westerns of the natural world. But is this really the case? Join us for a pub talk on urban ecology and uncover how Sydney’s Inner West is home to a rich variety of native wildlife like bandicoots, bees, and powerful owls that are reclaiming the urban landscape. We’ll discover that our cities are not as devoid of action as we might think.

We acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners of the land on which this event is held, the Cadigal people of the Eora Nation.

Accessibility Information: The pub talk will be held in the courtyard of the Oxford Tavern, which is wheelchair accessible.
