Frogs Vic June event

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the next Frogs Victoria event:

“The good, the bad, and the ugly of frog conservation”

Thursday 6th June 2019

Elgin Inn 75 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn VIC 3122

From 6 pm for dinner and drinks (available for purchase), talk starts at 7:30.

June’s presenter is Dr. David Hunter. David has been involved in frog research and conservation over the past 25 years. While undertaking his science degree at Latrobe University in Melbourne, he volunteered and worked as an assistant on the Spotted Tree Frog and Baw Baw Frog recovery programs. He then moved to Canberra, where he undertook his Masters and PhD research into the conservation management of Corroboree Frogs and the Booroolong Frog. David has since been working as a Threatened Species Officer for the NSW Government, and currently oversees the management of six threatened frog species in southern NSW.

Dave will talk about how human perceptions of the value and aesthetics of threatened frogs have influenced conservation efforts for these species.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or suggestions via Facebook, our contact page or info@frogsvic.org.

Hope to see you on the 6th of June!

We are hoping to livestream the event, so if you can’t make it, please tune in to our Facebook page from 7:15 pm on the 6th of June.

Thankyou all for your continuing support,

Best wishes,

Frogs Victoria
