TUCSON

Sky and Anne Hilts picked us up at the Tucson Airport and we headed for their home below the Tucson mountains. Tucson is surrounded by mountains with Mt Lemmon being the highest at nearly 9000 feet. Their home, like most we saw, is a flat-roofed pueblo-type building. The many nooks and crannies are filled with family photos, family trees (Anne can trace her family back to Charlemagne), shells, Sky’s medals (he was a navy doctor during the Vietnam war) and books.  

LOS ANGELES TO TEXAS

On April 14 we flew back to California to deliver two more lectures. Again we stayed at Muriel’s house in La Canada. The first was to the Pasadena Audubon Society. As before, some previous clients who had become friends joined us there, and it was a very convivial meeting. As in my other lectures to Audubon societies I covered some of the other fauna and flora of the Top End, some of my background and that of my family, both Aboriginal and otherwise. The meeting was very well attended.

Adelaide security specialist Vision IP Surveillance is launching the latest range of MOBOTIX high-resolution Internet Protocol (IP) security cameras this Thursday.

The invitation-only seminar will feature presentations from key executives from Germany-based MOBOTIX, which has established itself as a pioneer in the area of high-resolution network security cameras.

The breakfast event will both reveal the latest MOBOTIX products to the industry and introduce Vision IP Surveillance as the MOBOTIX South Australian Partner/Supplier.

Vision IP Surveillance is the specialist company from Adelaide-based security leader John Convill, who also runs the successful Vision Security Systems business.

Mr. Convill has already established MOBOTIX as a significant brand in the SA security sector. The new Gepps Cross office for Bianco Building Supplies is the largest MOBOTIX installation in Australia.

For more information about Vision IP Surveillance and MOBOTIX, email John Convill at john@visionss.com.au.

Denise GoodfellowUS audiences have enthusiastically welcomed the sustainable tourism and inter-cultural insights presented in lectures by Australian eco-tourism expert Denise Goodfellow.

Denise, a Darwin-based author who also runs an eco-tourism business, started the US lecture tour earlier this month in the north western state of Washington.

Topics covered during Denise’s two-month lecture tour include the wildlife and wetlands of northern Australia, bird watching in the Top End and indigenous perspectives on conservation.
