National Threatened Species Day commemorates the death of the last known thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, in 1936. A panel of our top researchers will come together to discuss endangered Tasmanian devils, wedge-tailed eagles and the red handfish.
About the Panel:
Andy Flies‘ focus is developing a vaccine to protect Tasmanian devils from the devil facial tumour disease.
Georgina Andersen captured the secret life of Tasmanian devils in a remarkable video experiment.
James Pay tracks Tasmania’s wedge-tailed eagles via text message.
Jemina Stuart-Smith is working to save the last population of the world’s rarest fish, the red handfish.
Hosted by Emily Flies who, with partner (and panelist) Andy, founded Science in the Pub and was Tasmania’s STEM Communicator of the Year in 2017
