Talk: Brian Trainer – Endangered Orchids of the SW Capes Region: A photographic record of their response to the January 2022 wildfires in Meelup Regional Park and Boranup Forest.

19 February @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The talk will cover some of the amazing hybrids seen post burns, and other surprise sightings, as well as pollinators and their interaction with orchids; additionally, research undertaken by DBCA and Kings Park will be presented.

Following a career in medical education, emergency medical simulation, anaesthesia and numerous medical organisations, orchid conservation and macrophotography have become Brian’s new found passion.  This interest has been gratefully encouraged and assisted by DBCA and Dr Belinda Davis from Kings Park. Involvement with ADORP (Adopt an Orchid Project) and membership of the WA Native Orchid and Conservation Group has provided an incredible insight into the challenges facing Australian terrestrial orchids and their conservation needs.

The aim of the talk will be to underline the valuable  role that volunteers can play in gathering basic data for the organisations that manage conservation measures.

Doors open 1.30pm for registration and book sales.
