MLG Monthly Meeting 7.30pm Thursday 4 April Natural history of local goanna species & managing for their conservation

MLG Monthly Meeting 7.30 pm Thursday 4 April The natural history of the local goanna species and how to manage properties for their conservation. Who: Dr Don Fletcher has spoken to MLG on a previous occasion( about eastern grey kangaroos). Dr Fletcher has retired from ACT government and is now running a citizen science project on Rosenberg’s Goanna (aka Heath Monitor Varanus rosenbergi). He has a secret longing to also research the Tree Goanna (aka Lace Monitor Varanus varius), in part because of its paradoxical disappearance from parts of the region other than around Nanima, leaving only Rosenberg’s Goanna. The latter species is declared ‘Vulnerable’ in NSW, while the Tree Goanna is abundant along the eastern seaboard of Australia. Don has a PhD in wildlife population dynamics and has a background in pest management and threatened species management. When: 7.30 pm Thursday 4 April (note we will still be under daylight saving on the night) Where: the Murrumbateman Rec Hall (the pub is booked). RSVP: reply email please by 2 April ( and any special requests from those suffering from herpetophobia).
