On Tuesday, 2 April, Gloucester Rotary Club invited John to make a dung beetle presentation to interested members and guests.
There were about 40 people present including local residents as well as farmers from the region.
The level of interest was evident in the question and discussion session that followed.
Of particular note were the comments of one farmer who had only recently moved into the district and who was able to inform participants how dung beetles had significantly improved the productivity and value of his property.
Our thanks to the Gloucester Rotary Club, in particular Ernie Abeysekera, Club Chairman as well as the Gloucester Bowling Club for hosting the event.
