It’s now too late to announce that the annual Melbourne Darwin Day picnic has been cancelled due to the Victorian government’s decision to impose a five-day lock-down to counter a small but worrying spike in Covid-19 infections.
Bummer. It’s a high point in our social calendar, and many of us were looking forward to it and planning to attend.
So obviously, all that remains is:
(a) to CONGRATULATE the Victorian government in following the Science. Darwin would have been proud.
(b) to do a bit of value-adding to our virtual Darwin Day.
Here’s a presentation about Charles Darwin by Tina Hanigan at Skepticon 2019.
Here is an hour’s worth of interviews recorded by Adam Ford of attendees at a recent Darwin Day.
