Our second “Celebration of our DRB legends” talk: “My life as a naturalist”.
Speaker: Dr Tony Start.
In all the photographs we have of Tony he is always helping people to understand what they have observed and found on our nature walks. He is a wonderful teacher for children and adults alike and always so generous with his knowledge which is very extensive on many aspects of natural history from mistletoe to bats! These pictures were taken at the Alan Anderson Walk Trail in 2017, and on conclusion of the Natural History course the DRB Nats ran for the Kalamunda Learning Centre. That is Tony in the middle! He is responsible for the flora and fauna survey, research and conservation aspects on The Western Australian Threatened Species Scientific Committee (TSSC) and Threatened Ecological Communities Scientific Committee (TECSC) by appointment by the Minister for Environment.
