Event Details

Join us for an afternoon of adventure with zoologist turned pilot, Amellia Formby. Departing from Broome in March 2019, Amellia will attempt to fly around Australia in a microlight aircraft in the same amount of time it takes a group of satellite-tagged shorebirds to migrate to the Arctic & back.

Amellia is a UWA alumni & recently left her role as a technician in the School of Biological Sciences to pursue Wing Threads: Flight Around Oz. See the plane & feel her commitment & passion as she speaks about her project to introduce students to migratory shorebirds in collaboration with BirdLife Australia.
