Mt Victoria December meeting - O E Wilson Biodiversity DVD

We meet next on Tuesday 11 December beginning 7:30pm, at New Crossways, Roxburgh St.

The DVD we are viewing is slightly different from the one advertised in the Mt Victoria newsletter due to technical difficulties but we have a similar one, still featuring the great biologist O E Wilson - still on biodiversity, its importance to our survival, and how much remains unknown about the number of species in the world and their importance to life. The DVD is only 22 minutes long allowing time some discussion and Christmas cheer. » Read more
