SER seminar series 


Dr Natasha Stacey and Johanna Karam present ‘Traditional ecological knowledge of whale sharks: Collaborating with Bajo fishermen of eastern Indonesia for whale shark conservation’, on Friday 9 May from 1pm.

This seminar takes place in room 1, building 22, Charles Darwin University’s Casuarina campus.

Natasha is a program coordinator with the School for Environmental Research and Joanna a research associate with the School of Environmental and Life Sciences at Charles Darwin University.
