#var:page_name# cover

Join us at our inaugural science cafe event and learn about science being conducted in our own backyard, while enjoying delicious food and drinks at Mataya Eatery in Mandurah! The science cafe is an opportunity to learn about science and research in an informal, casual setting.

As we celebrate the crabbing season in the Peel-Harvey estuary, the theme for the event will be the estuary. Come and hear researchers from Murdoch University discuss their projects - what they are learning, why and how.

Our presenters will be Clara Obregón and Sorcha Cronin-O'Reilly, PhD candidates from Murdoch University. Clara's research relates to the social and ecological dimensions of blue swimmer crab and black bream fisheries in the Peel-Harvey Estuary, while Sorcha's relates to the macro-invertebrates that make up an important part of our estuary food webs.

All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend our science cafe! Registration is $10 (includes canape style food and a drink) and can be purchased on Eventbrite until noon on Friday 23rd March.
