UPDATE TO MEMBERS MEETING - 27 November

 

Unfortunately, Tim Low will not be available to talk about his new book at our members meeting on 27 November. Instead, Andrew Taylor will talk on ‘Reptiles active this summer’. Andrew works at CSIRO Pullenvale and has acquired a huge knowledge of reptiles. He is called upon regularly to give talks at schools and for wildlife training workshops on reptile identification and first-aid treatment procedures.  Andrew lives in Brookfield and is very familiar with the reptiles that are likely to be encountered in the western suburbs.’
