Wedge-tailed Eagles – their story, as told by Simon Cherriman

Wedge-tailed Eagles – their story, as told by Simon Cherriman

December 8, 2017 @ 7:15 pm – 9:30 pm
Jorgensen Park Pavilion, Crescent Rd, Kalamunda WA 6076, Australia

Join us for our sparkling, fun and informative Christmas event.

Firstly, we have an amazing and very popular guest speaker: Simon Cherriman
Topic: Where Do Wedgies Dare?
The Wedge-tailed Eagle, or Wailitj in the Aboriginal Noongar language, is the largest bird of prey in Australia and one of the largest and most beautiful eagles in the world. Simon is currently conducting a WA-first project using satellite-trackers to research the movements and survival of juvenile Wedge-tailed eagles. Currently there is only limited knowledge of the movements and survival of juvenile Wedge-tails, but, we do know that many birds are killed by vehicles, and more recently, the threat of drones is encroaching on their habitat. If we leave it ’til they’re endangered, it could be too late. Top-order or apex predators like eagles are vital for keeping the ecosystems that other wildlife live in healthy. They control pest animals such as feral cats, feral pigs and rabbits, pick off sick and injured animals and encourage a high level of fitness in populations of native animals, and reduce disease risk by eating carrion. It is so important that we understand and look after them!

In 2013 Simon satellite-tagged two adult Wedge-tailed eagles in arid Western Australia to learn more about their movements, and the effectiveness of using GPS/Satellite tracking to study aspects of their life history such as home range and juvenile dispersal. This pilot study led to a PhD project at Murdoch University which began in July 2016. Simon will share his incredible knowledge on Wedge-tailed eagles.

Come along for an evening of stories of ‘eagle tracking’ and learn more about “Where Wedgies Dare!”.

Secondly:
We now have monthly nature competitions for children. When a child (under 16) comes along to a meeting they are invited to bring a drawing, craft work, story, study or video on the topic to the next meeting. Small prizes are given each month, but now at our Christmas event children are invited to bring back all their entries and all items will be displayed and a grand prize given.

Thirdly:
Time to be jolly with our Christmas quiz and yummy Christmas food and refreshments.

Fourthly:
Rumour has it we have a visit by Eric McCrum, no it’s not … it’s Father Christmas. What will happen? You will have to be there to see this spectacular event! Could be more prizes and gifts are given away than normal.

Please come early at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start as it will be a popular night and we start promptly. We are open from 7pm. We finish at 9.30pm.

We invite a donation of $3 per person for adult members and $0 for child members, and $5 per adult visitor and $1 per visiting child. Includes tea and coffee and home-made cake and biscuits!

Bookings not required. Come early to get a seat at the front though as this will be a popular night.

Perth’s Lost Lakes: A Symposium

Perth’s Lost Lakes: A Symposium

December 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm – 6:30 pm
Peter Cowan Writers Centre Inc., ECU, Joondalup Drive, Joondalup, Western Australia, Australia

Perth, initially praised by Captain Stirling for its abundant fresh water, now faces a critical shortage of water, reliant on desalination plants and depleted aquifers. Climate change, historic patterns of sprawling development and a massive influx of population attracted by the mining boom are noted culprits. But disdain for freshwater wetlands stretches from the earliest days of settlement, enabling the conversion of streams to sewers, marshes to suburban infill. It leads directly to the Barnett Government’s aborted plans for bulldozing Beeliar wetlands.

The story of Perth’s lakes and wetlands is, therefore, largely tragic, a 200 year history of infill, paving, draining, damming, over-building, covering and erasure.
Yet there is another, hidden story in the remaining lakes and wetlands, one of resilience and survival. The lost and forgotten lakes sustain what distinguishes Perth: its status as an internationally recognized biodiversity hotspot. If this biodiversity can be nurtured by restoring wetland ecosystems, Perth may weather the combined effects of climate change and the estimated doubling of population by 2050.

But how can Perth recover and rewild its lost lacustrine ecosystems when the dominant wisdom, inscribed on every “Road to Recovery,” invests in extending the built environment? And how might Perth’s human culture be more enriched by rediscovering its watery past? Join distinguished scholars, writers and civic leaders for an afternoon of enquiry and discussion, followed by a guided tour of Joondalup Lake.

Free entry.
