Ruby Moore, freshwater ecologist and collections Manager Natural Sciences at the Auckland Museum - The importance of fresh water streams in Auckland
Ruby Moore is a freshwater ecologist who has a particular interest in the streams and waterways around the Auckland region. During her career, she has worked with many school and community groups to raise awareness of the natural environment through education and citizen science. In her current role as Natural Sciences Collection Manager she is working to build a fuller picture of New Zealand’s unique critters and land vertebrates. In this talk she’ll highlight some of her finds in West Auckland streams as well as give us an overview of what is happening in wider Auckland in regards to fresh water streams and their inhabitants.
All are held at the Kelston Community Community Centre. Non members are very welcome, join us for supper afterwards. Koha appreciated to cover hall hire.
