JUNE 2017 Guest Speaker

Monday 26/06/17

Topic: Updates on Discussions from Previous BIEPA Meetings

(1) Updates on Prof Rob Capon’s work on designing a cane toad tadpole trap – hopefully, to eventually be sold out of Bunnings and his research into using cane toad toxins to control their populations.

(2) Sister Mary Tinney gave BIEPA a comprehensive explanation of the Pope’s Encyclical on the Environment in June 2016.  You will view a brief film, “Care for our Common Home” that is now available since it accompanied the original release of the Encyclical.

(3) We will be viewing the documentary, “Guarding the Galilee” which will highlight the impact the Adani coal project will have on the Bimblebox Nature Refuge – an 8,000-hectare property in the Desert Uplands Bioregion of Central West Queensland.  Members viewed the documentary, “Bimblebox”, at the April 2014 BIEPA meeting.
