Last month I was given the opportunity to attend the inaugural Australasian Invertebrate Conference held in Melbourne. The conference brought together Australian researchers, butterfly breeders and other invertebrate keepers for the first time to learn and discuss a wide range of topics about invertebrate biology, husbandry and display.
The Queen's Birthday long-weekend saw huge crowds visit the Museum. We thank everyone for coming out in such blustery and wintery weather. We especially thank one visitor for bringing his mum to his favourite place.
