Dr Luis Mata – guest speaker
After the AGM Dr Mata will present the findings of the 2-year Pollinator Project at Westgate Park.
Monthly surveys by RMIT researchers, 7 workshops and the observations by citizen scientists have yielded rich data about insects at Westgate Park.
Dr Mata works as part of the National Environmental Science Programme – Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub, where he is contributing to The Shared Urban Habitat, a research project looking at addressing the broad question of how humans can effectively share the urban habitat with other species.
He is particularly interested in developing protocols for bringing nature back into cities, including methods to understand how insects and birds disperse through fragmented urban landscape.
It’s not to be missed!
