Erna Walraven was a vital part of Taronga Zoo for over thirty years. As Senior Curator for both Taronga and Taronga Western Plains Zoo, Erna has had first-hand, comprehensive insights into animal behaviour, and the conservation of some of the world’s most remarkable – and threatened – species. Her 2019 release, Wild Leadership, delves into what wild animals can teach us about our own behaviour and relationships, while the upcoming companion book, Wild Fatherhood, continues that conversation into the world of parenting. We are delighted to showcase Erna in conversation with none other than Bellingen’s own mayor, Cr Dominic King.

Due to COVID-19 and the temporary closure of Bellingen’s Memorial Hall ticketing is running differently in 2021. You can buy tickets to individual sessions below, or use a discounted multi-session pass (if you have already bought one – no longer on sale). Thanks for your support!
Here’s how to book this session using a pass if you’ve bought one already.
