Coast to Coral | The Worlds Largest Fish! Whale Sharks and How Citizen Science Can Help

Join Reef Check Australia and friends on the second Tuesday night of each month in your lounge room/office/comfy chair, for an evening of discovery, inspiration and appreciation of our local marine, coastal and catchment environments.
This month we will hear from Dr. Chris Rohner, a Principal Scientist at Marine Megafauna Foundation, a non-profit research & conservation organisation. Chris has been researching whale sharks and other large marine animals for over a decade and holds a PhD from the University of Queensland. His research is collaborative and interdisciplinary and aims to aid the conservation of threatened marine species.
Chris will be talking about what we now know about the world's largest fish, and how citizen scientists can contribute to the study of whale sharks.
Virtual doors (zoom) opens at 6.25pm for a 6:30 pm start.
Stay after the event for networking and nibbles (BYO obviously!) - get your burning questions answered by Chris, and continue your thoughts, ideas and sea-minded discussions with your local community, all from the comfort of your couch!
Bring a mate and share in the discovery!
At Reef Check Australia we’re all about inspiring our mates and we love to read your thoughts! So, share your favourite parts about the night and tag us! Reef Check Australia #coasttocoral
