Presentation in Frankfurt about Uganda

Live lectures

Next Friday, 19.08.2022, at 7 pm, Sönke Frahm will hold his presentation “Uganda – pearl of Africa” in Frankfurt am Main. He will report on a trip to the East African country of Uganda, which is framed by South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya. The journey starts in Entebbe on Lake Victoria and from there to the Mitjanja District in search of snakes of the species Bitis and Atheris. Sönke then takes the visitor on a safari to the unique Queen Elisabeth National Park and for chimpanzee trekking in Kibale National Park. Afterwards, a visit to the famous mountain gorillas in Bwindi National Park is scheduled. The trip concludes in a swamp area at Lake Victoria to look for the charismatic Abu Markub, the “father of the shoe”. Sönke met several species of chameleons on the way – there are thirteen different ones in Uganda – and of course, photographed them. So if you want to enjoy an evening with not only herpetological impressions, Frankfurt is the place to be. The presentation is in German.

Live lectures

Anyone involved in chameleon husbandry will increasingly come across LED lighting. Although their use has been rather limited so far, LEDs now offer many possibilities, but also some dangers. Physicist Sarina Wunderlich from www.licht-im-terrarium.de has studied the subject in depth and bundled everything important into an informative lecture. The lecture “UV-B-LEDS: New developments and tried and tested methods for supplying vitamin D3 to terrarium inhabitants” will take place on Thursday, 18.08.2022, at 7 pm at the Munich State Zoological Collection. If you would like to attend, please send an email to Kathrin Glaw. A contribution towards expenses of € 10 will be charged, and drinks and pretzels will be organised.
