Where the Wild Things Go
The 6th Annual Steve Irwin Memorial Lecture, proudly presented by The University of Queensland and Australia Zoo, recognising the legacy of Steve Irwin was held on Thursday 13 November 2014.
Dr Hamish Campbell from The University of New England, who is an expert in the emerging field of movement ecology, was the keynote speaker.
Dr Hamish Campbell is a world authority on animal movement research, and has tracked fish, sharks, birds and reptiles, from the tropics to the poles.
He discussed how thousands of animals are currently being tracked and monitored in Australia and how this research is helping scientists to better understand the patterns, causes, and consequences of animal movement.
Over 200 people, including Steve Irwin’s widow, Terri, and their children, Bindi and Robert, attended the lecture at the Abel Smith Lecture Theatre, at UQ’s St Lucia campus in Brisbane. The lecture was run in conjunction with Australia Zoo.
