NOVEMBER 24 2018: VICTORIAN STATE ELECTION. 'ANIMAL JUSTICE PARTY'

           Dr Tamasin Ramsay is standing as the Animal Justice Party candidate in the seat of Albert Park at the November 24th Victorian State Election. Tamasin is a longtime supporter of Sanctuary Australia, and was a hands-on director here for some years.

  There is an excellent article by Robert Chuter about Tamasin, and her commitment to all the living beings in the electorate (and beyond), published in the St Kilda news this week: the link is below. Go for it Tamasin! Wonderful news! And, if we may say so, very much in the spirit of the sanctuary... our motto 'warm, open and welcoming'...https://medium.com/@dogeatdog1931/from-actress-to-activist-dr-tamasin-ramsay-51302c4d3fbb

'A WALK AMONG THE SNOW GUMS'

In this special program for all of us lovers of the forest, admired botanist Dave Carr from 'Stringybark Ecological' will lead us on a fabulous walk through the endangered Snow Gum Grassy Woodland community at the sanctuary: a forest community that few of us are familiar with. Dave's enthusiasm is unmatchable and he is sure to thoroughly engage us with his knowledge of the community's significance, and we will also share 'on ground' discoveries of our own with Dave. Then Alex Dudley, forest ranger and author, and a genius at celebrating the existence of minifauna and insects, will show us in absorbing detail what lives in a forest world no larger than your living room! Alex will also read from his enchanting book 'Faunaverse' which vividly brings to life, in images and verse, the animal world of Australia...it is sooo brilliant! So friends, with free morning tea and a free tasty lunch as well, you will be amazed at the wonders of the New England forests! Our thanks to GLENRAC too for sponsoring the day...

Dr Jodi Rowley from the Australian Museum will also join us with astonishing tales of her midnite searches for an extremely rare frog in the New England creeks...is it extinct? ...Dr Jodi is on the case..

LOOK FORWARD TO GREETING YOU!.
