  • Add event to calendar iCal

Australia has over 1000 species of land snails and slugs, yet most of us are only familiar with the few introduced species we see in our gardens. Dr Isabel Hyman will show you some of the amazing terrestrial gastropods we have in Australia, including both native and introduced species, and discuss their habitat needs and conservation threats.

Isabel is a research scientist based at the Australian Museum. Her interests include the evolution and systematics of Australian land snails.
