Dugongs - Wildlife Queensland Public Lecture

Home > Brisbane > Animals and Wildlife | Public Lectures
by Marina Marangos (subscribe)
Dugongs are big on sea grass - literally
Not many people know much about them. They are big but not easily sighted, common yet endangered, and very shy. They are said to be the most common marine mammal in the inshore waters of northern Australia but are now critically endangered in some areas of South East Queensland. These are only two of the many facts that we are hoping to hear from Dr Janet Lanyon, Marine Vertebrate Ecology Research Group, School of Biological studies, University of Queensland when she gives a lecture about Dugong breeding, Movements and population connectivity in South East Queensland.

Join Brisbane Branch of Wildlife Queensland at the Royal Geographical Society of Queensland for this free presentation, followed by supper. No need to book just come along.

The Royal Geographical Society of Queensland is at 237 Milton Road, (UBD21 L1 ) For more information check out the website : or call Mary on 07 3379 5191 or email

The lecture is on Tuesday the 28th of October 2014 and it starts at 7.30 pm.
