Australian Science Communicators – Victoria invites you to a screening of
“Stuck on a Rock” and a talk by invertebrate expert Rohan Cleave.
Join us on a cinematic journey to the paradise that is Lord Howe Island and
hear the story of one of the rarest insect species on earth – the Lord Howe
Island Stick Insect.
Thought to have been eaten to extinction by rats in the early 1900s, the
massive phasmid was rediscovered on a remote volcanic stack, Balls Pyramid.
Scientists embarked on an adventure of conservation to prevent it from
disappearing completely. Come and hear their stories in this beautiful film
about this remarkable and critically endangered animal.
>From 6pm in the LongPlay cinema bar, with food and drink available for
purchase (one drink free with your ticket!). The presentation will start at
7:30, followed by a question and answer session with Phasmid expert Rohan,
who can answer your questions about the insect and the making of the film.
ASC Members $10, Non-members $15. All tickets include entry to the event
and a free drink!
Tickets available at https://www.trybooking.com/BCKMG
