Predators and people have an amazing relationship, traversing emotions from awe and respect to fear and disdain. Ultimately, though, predators and people must coexist for the good of entire ecosystems.
Thus, Wild Melbourne is proud to announce our first fundraising event - a seminar and film night titled 'Predators and People: A Devilish Relationship?' The seminar will be held on Friday 9th October from 6:30-8:30pm in the Trinity College Dining Hall, Melbourne University.
Tickets ($10 + booking fee) can be purchased at this link: Predators & People
Invited speakers include:
- Dr Marissa Parrott presenting 'Falling for the Devil: Why we should love our ecosystem angels'
- Dr Tim Doherty presenting 'Hungry for more: feral cats as agents of extinction'
- Leonardo Guida presenting 'Sharks and fishing for the future'
- Daniel Hunter presenting 'Battle in the Bush'
On the night, Wild Melbourne will be joining forces with award winning film maker and ecologist Daniel Hunter to present a night of informative and engaging talks, followed by the Melbourne premiere of Daniel's latest film Battle in the Bush.
Battle in the Bush explores Australia's complex relationship with the dingo, as well as the devastating impacts that foxes and cats have on our precious wildlife. It also offers a potential solution - the Tasmanian devil.
All funds raised by Wild Melbourne will go towards the production of our upcoming documentary which explores the relationship between our community and nature. For more information about our upcoming film, head to our Projects Page.
'Predators and People: A Devilish Relationship?' is sure to be a fantastic and informative night, we hope to see you there.
