About the event
Cairns photographer Dominic Chaplin has been living in Far North Queensland since migrating to Australia in 1994. In a previously incarnation in the UK, he worked as an industrial research chemist. Despite no qualifications or experience, he turned his hand to biology as a volunteer citizen scientist. In recent years he has been challenging a natural inclination for limited physical activity by struggling up many of the mountains of Far North Queensland to check on the local bowerbirds.
In this talk, Dominic will review the last ten years measuring the distribution of upland bowerbirds in the Wet Tropics and beyond. Emphasis is given on the importance of good record keeping and the value of long term monitoring.
We hope you can make it!
