Judith Oakley - Our coastal wildlife
On Friday, November 8th we had an introduction to the astonishing variety of strange wildlife that live right on our doorstep - in Swansea Bay! Did you know, for example, that there are soft corals growing on Swansea Pier? Have you ever seen a Honeycomb Worm Reef, or our Harbour Porpoises?
Judith Oakley gave us a fascinating presentation, illustrated with her beautiful photographs, entitled "Our Coastal Wildlife".
Judith is a marine biologist who works extensively with local councils and their bio- diversity action plans; but she also runs educational events such as "Rocky shore rambles” and “Sandy shore safaris"; we are hoping to include one of these as part of next year's programme, so watch this space!
Our last meeting
We are a small but rapidly growing group of enthusiasts who keep and study reptiles and exotic animals. We hold monthly meetings for those able to attend and we run a very active Facebook page for those who are not.
Most meetings we have either a guest speaker or a talk by one of our members. Other meetings include ‘Bring something exotic and a camera’ evenings and of course the mandatory Christmas party in December and AGM. In January.
We meet on the first Friday of each month at 7.30 p.m. at:
Waunceirch Hall, Wern Fraith, Caewen, Neath, South Wales. SA10 7RQ.
If you would like to join us at one of our meetings please email email firstname.lastname@example.org
Everyone is welcome !
If you keep reptiles or exotics or even if you just have an interest then why not come along for a chat. While we are based in Neath we do not restrict our membership to any catchment area so if you can get to Neath we’d love to see you.
If you have any questions which are not covered by this web site then please email: email@example.com and we will do our best to give you an answer.
If you can’t make it as far as Neath then our Facebook page is always available.
Come and join us
Hello, how can we help?
We really want our group to grow.
Apart from our web site, Facebook and Twitter accounts we also have an A4 poster which we display in libraries, reptile shops, vets’ surgeries etc. You can help us to promote our group by downloading our poster and displaying it in suitable places to which you have access but that we have so far missed.
The poster is in PDF format which requires Adobe Reader to view. Most computers have this pre-installed but if yours does not you can get it here. You can print the poster directly or save it for future use. If you could let us know where you have displayed our posters that would be even better. Thank you.
