Doug Laing “A Stroll on Table Mountain”

You are here

Thursday, 18 May 2017 - 12:30pm to 1:30pm

Doug will take the audience for a sunny January morning stroll on the slopes of Table Mountain in summer bloom. This special place, part of the wider Cape Floral Kingdom, has  fascinating parallels and equally fascinating differences with  the Australian flora, particularly that of southwestern Australia. Some of these will be discussed in this talk, especially as they relate to the interaction between birds and plants in the two regions”.

Doug is a retired diplomat with a long fascination in natural history, ornithology and how things in nature are connected. He is an ANBG educator, volunteer guide and member of the 'Thursday Talks’ committee.
