April 8: Birds of the Amazon, Peter Odekerken

8 April 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hoatzin, a primitive bird of the quiet waterways of the Amazon Basin

Peter Odekerken has always admired wildlife and he worked with CSIRO Wildlife Research in Canberra when he left school in 1969. However, he worked on rabbits and decided at the ripe old age of 18 to go to Africa to hopefully be involved in working with African animals. This didn’t eventuate, but he ended up working in Civil Engineering and has been fortunate to have visited remote areas in many countries around the world, where he pursued his hobby of photography with a special interest in parrots. Peter has visited the Amazon Basin on three occasions and says, “It is an absolutely incredible natural wonder, having so much to offer for those interested in Neotropical wildlife.” In September 2019, he specifically visited Amazônia National Park to see the rare Golden Parakeet which is endangered.

At Friday Environment Forum on Friday April 8th, Peter Odekerken will take you on a photographic Amazonian exploration you won’t forget.
Come along to the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on April 8th, where the forum starts at 10.30am and coffee is available at 10am. COVID-19 protocols will be in place and attendees need to be double vaccinated.
