Details:
For the first event in our Twilight bites series, pioneering diver, conservationist and filmmaker Valerie Taylor discusses her life under the sea and her hopes for the future of shark conservation.

An accomplished competitive spear fisher, Valerie Taylor AM traded in her gun for a camera and has never looked back. Together with her late husband Ron, she has documented the plight of some of the world’s most maligned and misunderstood creatures and dedicated her life to the conservation of the world’s dwindling shark species. Her adventures have taken her to the glamour of Hollywood and the darkest depths of the deep blue sea.

Enjoy a drink and canapes on arrival before hearing from Valerie in conversation with Australian Museum Chief Scientist, Professor Kris Helgen.

Following the talk, explore the AM’s Sharks exhibition where a dedicated Shark scientist will share their research and be on hand to answer your questions.
