Our team presents June's Gecko Community talk at Currumbin RSL!

An interview with Dr. Laura Grogan on ABC Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast News Radio ensured that we had a magnificent turnout for this month's Gecko (Gold Coast and Hinterland) Environment Council Association talk at the Currumbin RSL club on Wednesday evening (23 June, 2021)!

After Laura gave an overview on the problem of chytridiomycosis (frog chytrid fungal disease), four of our students (Josie Humphries, Thais Sasso Lopes, Matthew Mangan, Stephen Molan, see image below), gave excellent presentations to tell us about their research!

Students from our team who presented and their research topics.

Josie Humphries also put together an engaging brochure to share our work with the public (see below)!

Congratulations, especially to our students, for so effectively engaging members of the community with our research and educating the public on the threats facing our amphibians!
