    Our June meeting Wednesday 26/06/2013 features a fantastic presentation by Matthew Bonnett on "The Madagascar Experinece"
    Matthew has been flown in from South Australia. Many of us have dreamed of visiting Madagascar and to discover the wonderful fauna it has to offer.
    This should be a great talk that might inspire some of us to achieve this goal.


    Herpetofauna magazine has arrived today and will be posted out to subscribers on Tuesday. This is a double edition catch up issue for 2011 year.
    It is expected there will be a second double edition in the next 6 months. Thank you for your support of the iconic truly Australian Herpetological Journal.


    Our last meeting the AGM and Auction was a fantastic night that saw us raise $2850. These funds are extremely important to the society and covers costs
    such as yearly venue hire and field trips etc. Thank you to those who supported this event. Welcome to the new committee members, Rob Burns,
    Philip Topham and Sharleen Knox who have jumped on board. We are looking forward to working with you all.
