Dear ASC’ers,

Sent on behalf of Teresa Belcher and Valerie Gregory


We’ve identified 135 Science Week events around Australia with a biodiversity connection. So we thought we’d share them with you in this special Science Week edition of our Biodiversity Year bulletin.

You can learn how to keep bugs alive, immerse yourself in flora and fauna on a walk through the forest, hear about the unique environment of Barrow Island in Western Australia and discover how a genetic disease in the Royal Family relates to biodiversity.

There are so many events we can’t list them all here (it runs to 14 pages). Visit and find out what’s happening in your state during National Science Week.

Kind regards,

Teresa and Valerie
