Thirst for Knowledge.

Don’t count your kiwi before they’ve hatched: how genetics can help save threatened species.

This month, Dr. Helen Taylor, from the Department of Anatomy, will tell us how conservation by numbers can be misleading when we’re trying to save our threatened species. From inbred kiwi to dodgy bird sperm, find out why genetics is an important tool for conserving New Zealand’s unique wildlife.

Stop by Ombrellos after work for an opportunity to engage with science professionals in a casual and informal setting. All welcome, no science background needed, simply bring a healthy thirst for knowledge.

Hosted by the Department of Physiology, University of Otago and the Otago Museum.
