WHERE DO EAGLES DARE? – NEXT MEETING OF BUSSELTON NATURALISTS CLUB THURSDAY OCTOBER 10
Simon Cherriman is rapidly developing a cult-like following in the natural history world.
His research into wedge-tailed eagles has shown they can fly across the Australian continent in just a few weeks and then return to the area of their birth.
To explain where Simon obtained his motivation to study the world’s 4th largest eagle with a wing span of up to three metres, Simon has produced a video of his work, set in Australia’s central desert area.
The one and a quarter hour video entitled Where Do Eagles Dare? will be shown at the Busselton Naturalists Club’s next meeting to be held on Thursday October 10.
Venue is the Busselton Senior Citizens Centre at 22 Peel Terrace, entry is free and the general public are most welcome to attend.
The movie is well suited to children and a gold coin donation is requested to help the Club cover the costs of hiring its meeting venue.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Club president Bernie Masters will give a demonstration of the new iNaturalist website where wildlife – plant and animals and everything else – from around the world-wide can be uploaded via a very simple and quick process.
All observations are then checked by expert volunteers to verify the accuracy of the plant or animal identification and, once verified, the observation can be used by researchers in any country to better understand the world around us.
