6:30pm – 8:30pm
ISOBAR, 23 Bow Street
The Whāingaroa Environment Centre‘s “Marine Matters” project brings another free community
science night to town. All welcome!
This edition, coordinated in collaboration with Karioi Project, focuses on seabirds and how they
act as environmental indicators for our oceans!
The night begins at 6:30 PM, so come early to ISOBAR and grab some nibbles, a drink and a good seat!
– Dr Brendon Dunphy will be talking about northern NZ seabirds as indicators of ocean conditions
and what we are trying to learn from them (tracking, physiology, the biology of petrels and penguins).
– Edin Whitehead will talk about her PhD studies about Ōi, Grey Faced Petrel.
Come along and meet Timebank members over a cuppa. This is a public event, all welcome.
The face-to-face opportunity makes such a big difference! It’s so much easier to make connections and even get the help you need. People usually find out about things they would like to do or learn, and they even realise things they can offer!
