We are delighted to welcome Louise Streeting from UNE as our special guest speaker.

Louise Streeting is a Masters of Environmental Science student at the University of New England, Armidale. Louise is a Zoologist with an interest in freshwater turtle conservation. Her research project on the endangered Bell’s Turtle (Myuchelys bellii) is evaluating in-situ nest protection versus ex-situ rearing of hatchlings as strategies to increase recruitment of hatchling turtles into the wild.

Please join us on Friday 29th November for our Annual General Meeting and Christmas Party.
The evening will include a tour of our wonderful Tamworth Regional Nursery from 5.30pm to 6pm at 300 Wallamore Rd.
