BSSA Q&A Special: Perspectives for Young Conservationists

Bonus Episode: An Audio Guided Tour of the South Port Dunes

In this special episode of the BSSA Podcast host Bradley Bianco takes listeners on a short audio guided tour of the South Port Noarlunga Dunes system. The tour starts at the northern trailhead of a track that winds its way through these rare relics of sand hills that would have once spanned the Adelaide Coast. On the tour we have a look at many of the dune's native plants, listen out for some native animals, appreciate the views from the top of the tallest dune and learn about edible plants found growing in the sand. The tour starts here: [https://goo.gl/maps/eVs52c2nU6S7hUXw5] Enjoy!

Ep. 16 - The Illegal Wildlife Trade: Part II

What makes a species invasive? Turns out there's a lot of human behaviour at play between taking a species from the wild, and it becoming invasive in Australia. The story includes a complex pet trade, which is an ermergent global issue for wildlife. PhD Candidate Adam Toomes joins us to discuss the dynamics of alien vertebrate species establishing populations in Australia, and the key stages that we need to be looking at to combat the issue. Hosted by Bradely Bianco and featuring Adam Toomes, PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide. Adam is working with the Invasion Science and Wildlife Ecology research team. For part one of 'The Illegal Wildlife Trade', see episode three of the BSSA Podcast. Produced by Christopher Jolly and Myall Tarran; promoted by Kiri Marker; intro music by Darcy Whittaker; and support from the Biology Society of South Australia.
