Gold coin donation

Sun 21 July 10-11:30am

Charlie’s On East, East Beach

A self-described technoecologist, Dr Blake’s PhD explored how technology can examine animal movement in modified landscapes. As the Chief Remote Pilot for Deakin’s Victorian Coastal Monitoring Program, Dr Blake specialises in drone imagery, photogrammetry, spatial statistics, geographic information systems, species distribution modeling, and volumetrics. Intrigued? Hear how the program – along with citizen scientists - gathers valuable info about our local coastal conditions, hazards and the expected longer-term impacts of climate change. Impacts that effect life above and below the water.

This event is part of the Winter Whale Trail from Cape Otway to Cape Nelson and is supported by I Am Warrnambool. Your entry donation goes to Port Fairy Coastal Group.
