Adam Kerezsy: Desert Fishing Lessons: Saving Species from Extinction

Saving the redfinned blue-eye is no great greenie-pinko conspiracy – it just makes sense. It might work, it might not, but I reckon it’s worth a go.
– Dr Adam Kerezsy

Dr Adam Kerezsy is a freshwater ecologist who works in some of the driest rivers and springs of inland Australia. Working with Bush Heritage Australia, he focuses on recovering populations of the critically endangered red-finned blue-eye, a small fish only known to live in Great Artesian Basin springs at Bush Heritage’s Edgbaston Reserve, in western Queensland.

Join Adam to be informed and inspired about the wonders beneath the waters of inland Australia, the practise of excellent Australian science, and the real-life challenge of saving species from extinction.

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good rant. Every Thursday, the Wheeler Centre hosts an old-fashioned Speakers’ Corner in the middle of the city, where writers and thinkers can have their say on the topics that won’t let them sleep at night.

Featuring some of our most compelling voices across just about every sector of human endeavour you can imagine, the themes dominating Lunchbox/Soapbox are proudly idiosyncratic. BYO lunch. Ideas provided.

Lunchbox / Soapbox

We love exploring ideas at the Wheeler Centre, and encouraging others to do the same. That’s why every Thursday lunchtime we hand the microphone over to the great thinkers, dreamers and orators of our time.

With a dazzling range of passionate speakers and unusual topics, our soapbox provides a platform for the eclectic, topical and enlightening stories you won’t hear elsewhere. This is the most memorable lunch break you’ll have all week.

If you’re in need of sustenance of body as well as mind, the MOAT lunch cart will be serving delicious $10 lunchboxes in the Performance Space from 12.20pm.
