June Meeting – Josh Hatton – Mauritius & Madagascar
It is our great pleasure to invite all members and guests to the June AHS meeting on the 28th of June.
We will be hosting Josh Hatton who has been working at Taronga Zoo in the herpetofauna department for the last couple of years.
But over the last 6 months has been on one incredible adventure studying the Endangered Reptiles of Mauritius and the outer islands.
Engaging in conservation work such as island expedition trips to uninhabited islands doing reptile surveys, recording population numbers, searching for new species, genetic variation within an island population and also head starting endangered reptiles in captivity to restore small islands with endemic wildlife.
Josh will also be doing a section about Herping in Madagascar and searching for endangered reptiles and amphibians for PH.D. Student research.
In addition to this great talk, we have arranged for the head of OEH Licencing Review, Robert Oliver, to come along & talk about the proposed licencing changes. This will be a great opportunity to hear it from OEH themselves, & for you to ask any questions you may have about the changes.
Hope to see you all there will be a fantastic evening.
