September club meeting to proceed via ZOOM

Matt Hall’s talk on the Australian Brush-turkey has been brought forward.

SYNOPSIS

The Australian Brush-turkey was once rare due to overhunting, but is now commonly observed in urban areas. Colonising and surviving in cities is a difficult feat for many species. My research aims to understand how Brush-turkeys are behaving in, moving through, and using habitat in the Sydney suburbs. Citizen scientists are helping us track their movements and have provided a wealth of data on their behaviours and distribution. Combing public participation with traditional ecological research is helping to unravel the mystery of how the species is thriving in the hostile environment of the big city.

Look out for the link in the forthcoming Bulletin #158.
