Saturday, 13th April

Come along and be part of ‘citizens tackling antibiotic resistance in the wild’.

Scoop-a-Poop is a citizen science project coordinated by scientists from Macquarie University, in collaboration with Taronga Zoo and the University of Sydney. You will learn the ecology of urban brushtail possum, antibiotic resistance in the environment and how antibiotic resistant bacteria are moving from humans to wildlife. Participants will receive a collection kit so they can participate in the study – and then later will get the test results.

Local WIRES will come along as well. Suitable for ages 12+ – must be accompanied with an adult.
