Hi everyone,


The Australian Marine Sciences Association (Qld branch) have asked me to forward this invitation to you. Please contact Beth directly if you have any questions. I’ll be talking about my PhD research in marine science communication and the potential for marine citizen science to engage Australians in science. Hope to see some of you there!




You are invited to come along to the next AMSA Science in the Pub discussion:
