Secret Lives of Glenaeon Birds

18 November 2022

Our resident Ornithologist Dr Stanley Tang, also our Assistant Head Of School (Senior Studies) Science, Mathematics Teacher and High School Mentor,  was invited to participate in the filming of an upcoming episode of the Secret Lives of Urban Birds for ABC Science program, Catalyst – the Sydney version.  You can watch the Melbourne episode here:

Five Glenaeon students ably assisted Stanley to capture and tag birds (bird banding) in North Arm Reserve adjacent to the Middle Cove campus as part of the filming plan. Stanley was interviewed by the ABC presenter Dr Ann Jones.  The episode will go to air in 2023.

Thanks to Max (Year 7), Hayden (Year 8), Nathan (Year 11), Anouk (Year 11), Jolan (Year 11) for flying into this project and the early wake up call with such enthusiasm!
