Wildlife, Cake & Cocktails
About This Show
Welcome to WCC, the first and only podcast dedicated to Australian wildlife science and conservation!
The best science discussions often happen after dinner, usually over cake, frequently over cocktails, but always in a relaxed atmosphere. Grab some dessert, pour a tasty drink, and come join us at the table for a relaxed chat with some amazing wildlife scientists and our animal nerd buddies. Enjoy!

We cross over to Christmas Island to speak with Hamish Noller, reptile enthusiast and recent UQ Wildlife Science graduate. We're also joined bv Jason Turl, ranger at Parks Australia, to chat about the Christmas Island Blue-Tailed skink, now extinct in the wild but maintained in two captive breeding colonies, one where Hamish is volunteering. We also discuss Christmas Island's other reptiles, many other threatened species, general ecology, and throw back some blue-island ice tea with caramel-chocolate slice :)
