Come along for a great evening of entertainment.

A live hypothetical about bees, sharks and overreactions

Every year 10 innocent Australians die from bee stings
But it was after the tragic death of a good looking and very popular 24 year old hiker that the Premier knew he had to protect the community from these predators.

So, he announced a series of “Parkland Bee Management Zones” with baited nets in popular urban parks. Inspired by Geoffrey Robertson, Strictly Hypothetical uses fictional scenarios to explore real world issues. Join our live, unrehearsed panel with MC Elisa Williams.

Our panelists include:
Dr Martin Drum - Lecturer in Politics at Notre Dame University
Natalie Banks - Founder of No Shark Cull WA
Catrina Aniere - CEO of Millennium Kids Inc
Tiffane Bates - Apiary Manager at Centre for Integrative Bee Research

Tickets $30, $25 concession online. Book a table of up to 6 for $140. Or $35 on the door.  Book via:

Sponsorship and Fundraising Donations Discussion

The Environmental Defender’s Office is planning a major fundraiser for 12 September 2014.

The Environmental Defender’s Office ( of Western Australia (Inc) is a non-profit, non-government and politically independent community legal centre, specializing in public interest environmental law. It’s legal aid for the environment! Their services include:

* Providing community group and individuals with legal advice and representation on environmental issues
* Promoting environmental law reform
* Undertaking community legal education

The EDO had all their Federal funding cut without warning just before Christmas last year. For this reason, fundraising is essential for the EDO to continue to provide free legal services and to undertake litigation to protect WA’s unique environment.

Our major fundraiser for 2014 will be ‘The Great Bee Cull’ event on Friday 12 September.

Please consider supporting this event with your donations and come along on the night. It would be greatly appreciated if any bulky donations could be delivered to the Environmental Defender’s Office WA (Inc) Suite 4, 544 Hay Street, Perth. However, if this is not possible for you, we will make an alternative arrangement.

Vouchers or small items can be posted to the above address too. Feel free to include any promotional brochures you would like displayed.

I can be contacted on 0422 460 598 or if you would like to discuss this further.

Regardless of whether you can help with a prize, we invite you to join us at the Great Bee Cull fundraiser (
