Thursday 19th October, 6pm

Join research scientist and author Dr Lisa-ann Gershwin talk about her favourite subject- jellyfish, along with a range of other species that GLOW- these included many thrateneted species, including the Tasmanian Masked Owl, the quoll, the Tasmanian Devil and more. 'Glow-girl' Lisa-ann is a wonderful, engaging speaker & this is set to be an incredibly interesting and informative session.
There are 683 species of plants and animals, including insects and other invertebrates, on Tasmania's Threatened Species List. Yes, there are the iconic ones so many people know about, but there are numerous species that are tiny, little known or ‘less attractive’, which are no less important to our rich and varied eco-system. This new exhibition will expand our understanding of the range & diversity of threatened species and educate of their plight. It also aims to raise much needed funds to go towards their support.
It’s a small thing we can do during an age of climate change, mass species decline and habitat loss.
