— by Caragh

slaterskinktalk

Claire Treilibs has submitted her PhD thesis and would like to present the results to the Alice springs community on Friday week, Dec 16th at 3.30 at CDU lecture theatre in a talk titled Conservation Ecology of Slater’s Skink. This talk will be of interest to many in the community who may have been part of the broader Slater’s Skink surveys over the last few years.

Nibblies will be provided before and after Claire’s talk and the doors open at 3 pm for the 3.30 talk Refreshments will also be provided at the end of the talk for those who would like to stay and help Claire celebrate her thesis submission.

A sombre aspect of the proceedings will be knowledge of the sudden death of Claire’s well respected supervisor Prof Mike Bull from Flinders University in late November. Mike had supervised several students here over the years and had given a talk here on his beloved pygmy bluetongue lizards.
