Following a great tag along tour through the bush, the Dongolocking Hall was transformed into a science lab and project findings and results were collated. An informative Invertebrate presentation and a “Get to know your Malleefowl” information were also delivered to a very appreciative crowd.
Professor Jonathan Majer, explained the importance of invertebrates (animals without a spine) and discussed the overall ecology of the area, commenting on how many diverse species of ants were found in the Dongolocking traps.
The microscope demonstrations showing a selection of invertebrates was the highlight of the day, before all enjoyed a delicious BBQ.
Comments from the day reflected the interest generated from this project - “Awesome”, “Keep enjoying nature” and “By far more appreciative of ants!”
