This gurl is #flying to Syberia in a #microlight #helphergetthere #wingthreads #birdlife [#geekgirl]

Her name is Amellia Formby, but everyone calls her Milly. She is a qualified zoologist and artist (www.millyformby.com) and currently lives in Perth, working full-time as a technician in the School of Animal Biology at The University of Western Australia (UWA). In her spare time she volunteers for Shorebirds 2020 WA Coordinator for BirdLife Australia.

Last year she began learning to fly a microlight aircraft to fly from Australia to Siberia following the migration path of the Red-necked Stint to promote urgent action for shorebirds – a group of mostly wetland-dwelling birds that perform the longest feats of migration known to the natural world.

Help fund her folks!

Love #Food Hate #Waste #Victoria [#geekgirl]


Demonstrations to help you love your leftovers…

Everyone loves delicious food, but it is easy for the food we buy to end up in the bin – in fact, 44% of Victorians admit to spending money on food that is rarely or never eaten!  Join chef Ben Mac from the Social Food Project for a cooking demonstration dedicated to reducing food waste at home. Covering meal planning, food storage and being creative with left overs, this event will help you save time and money and help avoid food waste.

Part of the City of Melbourne’s Love Food Hate Waste program, you’ll get great recipes using fresh, seasonal produce from Queen Victoria Market, handy food-saving tips and lots of delicious taste testing.melbourne.vic.gov.au/lovefoodhatewaste
