Venture into the strange, wondrous, and dangerous animal kingdom of Papua New Guinea, home of kangaroos that climb trees, the world’s largest butterfly, and a bird so beautiful that the “bird of paradise” flower was named after it. These are only a few of the amazing species discussed in this presentation by Dr. Andrew Mack. Much of his research focuses on the cassowary, a large, flightless bird with powerful legs and sharp talons that is native to New Guinea.
Andy was the Executive Director of the IndoPacific Conservation Alliance (IPCA Jan 2013 – Nov 2015), and is the Scientific Director of Green Capacity and author of Searching for Pekpek: Cassowaries and Conservation in the New Guinea Rainforest. He spent 15 years in Papua New Guinea exploring, researching, and teaching.
