Drawing Coral
Spreading the Word
The Small Friends Book team have started spreading the word - literally - about our books.
On Saturday April 11, book authors Aviva Reed and Gregory Crocetti travelled out to Coolart Wetland Observatory to read our book Zobi and the Zoox, and co-create a large coral bommie drawing to hang on the observatory wall.

Thanks to Deborah Prentice at Parks Victoria and Ranger Sue at Coolart Wetlands for the amazing support in organising and promoting the workshop, and all the great participants, both young and old!
International Symbiosis Society
Going Global
Briony and Gregory have been invited to co-chair the Teaching Symbiosis session at the 8th Congress of the International Symbiosis Society in Lisbon, Portugal (July, 2015). This will provide a great opportunity to share some of our Scale Free Network experiences - including the Small Friends books - with a global audience!

We are honoured to be able to share this platform with Prof. Marc-André Selosse (Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris) and Dr. Silvana Munzi (Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes, Universidade de Lisboa).
Life did not take over the globe by combat, but by networking.
