Hear how preserving ancient yeast can still serve us today, and how you can get involved in protecting Queensland biodiversity.


How citizen science can save Biodiversity

Michael Tervo (Project Officer, Queensland Trust for Nature)

Queensland has the most extensive network of privately protected areas in Australia. Join Michael to explore how you too can help conserve our incredible biodiversity for generations to come, and protect these vital species and spaces.

Michael completed his Master of Conservation Science in 2020 at the University of Queensland. Since graduating Michael leads Citizen Science at the Queensland Trust for Nature, working with citizen scientists to conserve Queensland’s biodiversity.

From tomb to table: the Ancient Yeast Project

Dr Serena Love (Principal Archaeologist, Everick Foundation)

This project extracted yeast from ancient Egyptian ceramic vessels to make bread and beer. The methods and outcomes of the project will be discussed, including sourdough bread making, experimental baking and attempts with beer.

Serena completed her PhD in 2011 from Stanford University in Archaeology. She has worked in Egypt, Turkey, Israel and Iraq since 1995 and moved to Australia in 2012. She currently heads the Everick Foundation, working with Aboriginal archaeology.
