On 11 February, an audience of more than 30 people attended the second meeting of the Hunter Branch's program of events for 2024 at the Newcastle Exhibition and Conference Centre.  There, Honorary Professor Michael Mahony AM of the University of Newcastle delivered an informative and enthralling lecture titled 'Conservation, Frogs, and Citizen Science' in which he addressed the need to manage the threatening processes that bring species to extinction, using amphibians as his illuminating case study. If you missed the talk, please take this opportunity to catch up on our YouTube channel.

In Sydney on 17 April, in the Metcalfe Theatre of the State Library of NSW, an audience of 70 people enjoyed and participated in a timely and cogent discussion of one of the great issues of our time — '"Putting the 'Civil' back in Civil Society". Emeritus Professor Peter Shergold AC FRSN, Vice-President of the Royal Society of NSW,  and Professor Kristy Muir, Chief Executive Officer of the Paul Ramsay Foundation, debated the threats posed to democracy by authoritarianism, xenophobia and populism, and the waning trust in leaders and government through the powerful role of social media. A lively Q and A session with the audience, which delved more deeply into the issues and potential solutions, followed their presentations.  This not-to-be-missed event is now available on our YouTube channel.
