Talk about fascinating nature at conservation society

A Pied Wagtail at attention.

An entertaining and wide-ranging presentation is to take place at the meeting of Modderfontein Conservation Society.

Titled ‘Of Animals, Insects, Birds and their Calls’, the presentation promises to be filled with fascinating facts and information about all these species.

Jan van Heerden is the guest speaker. He is an engineer by profession; now into his seventh year of retirement and loving every minute of it. Now, instead of working on massive projects such as the Medupi and Kusile power stations, Jan hones his appreciation of all aspects of nature and indulges a passion for sharing a virtual database of knowledge with anyone who will listen.

Featured in his talk is the Animal Demography Unit (ADU) which is a research unit of the University of Cape Town. The unit has a mission to contribute to the understanding of animal populations, especially population dynamics, and thereby provide input to their conservation.

The ADU has been instrumental in the development of citizen scientists, a body of ordinary people everywhere who share their observations of nature and the environment. Jan will tell how you can help out.

The meeting takes place in Modderfontein Town Hall at 1 Casino Road at 7.30pm on May 17. Visitors are welcome to attend.

An entrance fee of R30 is charged to help cover expenses.

For more information, call Jenny Gough on 011 452 2201 or 082 685 0959.
