Event Description

Full Description:
We are delighted to invite you to the 9th Annual Steve Irwin Memorial Lecture which is proudly presented by The University of Queensland and Australia Zoo.

This lecture recognises the legacy of Steve Irwin and highlights the work of enthusiastic and outstanding conservationists. The 2018 speaker is Honorary Associate Professor Anne Goldizen from The University of Queensland's School of Biological Sciences.

Honorary Associate Professor Goldizen will present her talk on the topic of - Spying on animals: unravelling the social systems of wild animals.

Honorary Associate Professor Goldizen has focused her research career on understanding the social behaviour of birds and mammals, and particularly the reasons why individuals differ in thei r social behaviour. Anne has used long-term field studies of individually identifiable animals to do this. In this lecture, Anne will discuss her methods and findings from studies of Amazonian and African primates, birds, threatened wallabies, eastern grey kangaroos and Namibian giraffes.

Join Honorary Associate Professor Goldizen as she shares stories about what it is like to get to know wild animals as individuals and to be accepted by them.

This is a free event. Please register to secure your seat.
