Handfish with Jemina Stuart-Smith | Handfish Conservation Project

Send us a Text Message. The following Wild Chat is with Jemina who is a Marine Biologist at the Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania. Currently Jemina coordinates the Handfish Conservation Project working tirelessly researching and collecting data to help recover these critically endangered fish. Jemina and her team have found waters of Tasmania are warming due to the East Australian Current bringing in warmer waters, which inevitably, is changing the fish and their habitats. The Handfish sure is a unique looking creature and as Jemina describes the warming waters are not the only issue involved in the decline of these fish. Make sure you do yourself a favour and visit the website http://www.handfish.org.au and find out more on how you can help by donating towards this project plus you get to see the weird and wonderful photos of these cold water fish. I really enjoyed learning more about what Handfish are and excited to see this project bring in more information so we can learn about our creatures of the sea.

Mangrove Watch Program with Alex Sinchak from CAFNEC

Send us a Text Message. The following Wild Chat is Alex Sinchak who works within the Mangrove Watch Program here in Far North QLD Cairns. Alex works with volunteers and encourages our community to get involved as citizen scientists, where not only do they help with data collection but also learn more about the importance of our Mangroves and Estuaries. In 2017 CAFNEC (Cairns & Far North Environment Centre) established the Mangrove Watch Program and believes it is extremely important for long term monitoring to occur which gives scientists an indicator of change over time. Their monitoring has now collaborated with South Cape York Catchments, Great Barrier Reef Legacy and Dawul Wuru Aboriginal Corporations Yirrganydji Rangers which allow a whole lot more coastal monitoring to occur. The health of our Mangroves is imperative for a healthy foreshore, seagrass beds and for the Great Barrier Reef.

The importance of Keystone Species and How Everything is Connected | Sera Steves

7/25/2021
Send us a Text Message. The following Wild Chat is with Sera Steves a Zoologist and advocate for all things Wildlife and an extremely dedicated advisor and spokesperson for our Spectacled Flying Foxes, found right here in North Queensland's Wet Tropics. Today Sera talks to us about the importance of keystone species, like bats and cassowaries, and how they play a crucial role in the environment. We go deep in understanding how everything is connected and what may happen if we lose a particular species. Sadly our Spectacled Flying Fox is endangered and today we chat more about these gorgeous flying mammals, what role they play in our rainforests and why they should be listed as critically endangered. I absolutely loved listening to Sera’s knowledge and her passion for our Aussie Wildlife.
