Come along and enjoy a three course dinner with guest speaker Ric Nattrass, the Wild Man of ABC radio. Ric's new book "Talking Wildlife" will also be available for purchase on the night. As well as a great public speaker, Ric will also run a mini auction of some great items including a painting by renowned local artist David Conolan.

Now in its 12th consecutive year, Wildlife Talkback with Ric Nattrass is one of the most popular talkback segments on Queensland ABC local radio. Less well known about the Wild Man is his Toastmasters' International Award of Communicator of the Year 1995 for his hilarious look at the Sex Life of the Brush Turkey. 

Ric was a contributing author to the best selling Wildlife of Greater Brisbane, an honorary Life Member of four conservation groups, president of both the Queensland Frog Society and the Ipswich Koala Protection Society, secretary of the Australian Dragonfly Society and in April 2003 was awarded a Centenary Medal "For outstanding service to community knowledge and conservation of the natural environment".
