Wildlife Queensland Annual Dinner with Prof Mike Archer
December 7 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Mike is Professor of PalaeoBiology at the University of New South Wales and is perhaps best known for leading research into the extraordinary Riversleigh fossil deposits in Queensland, which led to the site being listed on the World Heritage Register as an outstanding example of “major stages of the earth’s evolutionary history and significant ongoing ecological and biological evolution”. (http://www.create.unsw.edu.au/team/marcher/)
Join us for dinner and hear about Mike’s current research on discovering how the fossil record has vital information about how to save critically endangered species ‒ using strategies that would never have occurred to ecologists. His team is starting a project of this kind now to save the critically endangered Mountain Pygmy possum, and he is positive it will work!
Ticket includes two-course meal and a drink.
