Parks Alive 2015

Come along to the “Parks Alive” festival at Roma Street Parkland this weekend to learn more about our research on eastern water dragons! Celine will be presenting at 4pm on Saturday 22 August, and will lead a guided walk for those who would like to meet some of the local city slickers. This is a family friendly event, and you can find the full program here.


Behaviour conference 2015

Last week some of us flew to Cairns to attended "Behaviour 2015 conference" which was a joint meeting of the International Ethological Conference (IEC), Australasian Society for the Study of Animal Behaviour (ASSAB), Australasian Evolution Society (AES), and Australasia, New Zealand and Africa Region of Applied Ethology. It was a great opportunity to present our work and learn from leading researchers across the globe. Kasha was invited to present a poster on her work on the social lives of eastern water dragons (see pic below), and Celine made an oral presentation on her recently published work undertaken in collaboration with Martin Whiting, on polyandry. Congratulations to organisers and participants for an exciting few days.
