Natural wonders of Casuarina Coastal Reserve online webinar
SUNDAY 26 APR 2020 | 11:00AM - 12:30PM
Darwin's "back yard" includes Casuarina Coastal Reserve - an area full of amazing natural wonders and open to visitors during the current restrictions. Along the beaches are complex mangrove ecosystems, shorebirds on holiday from Siberia or Mongolia and beaches where flatback turtles come to lay eggs. Not far offshore are sea meadows and reefs bustling with sea life, while inland are intricate monsoon forest habitats and woodlands. There is also a small area of forest awaiting the return of the mysterious and elusive Atlas Moth. Larrakia people have places in the area which have been important and sacred to them for aeons..
Join ecologist Dave Liddle, Landcare facilitator Deb Hall and other experts as we discuss tantalising highlights and treasures of the area and what special things might be happening during the current season (early dry). We'll also identify threats to animals, plants and their habitats, what is being done about them and what more we can do - both as a society and as individuals - to honour the area's heritage.You'll have the chance to ask questions via text during the session and also during a Q & A session towards the end. Note that your face won't appear on the screen, that's something only the panel needs to worry about!
