Carolina Zuluaga is an ecologist who worked on the project to introduce the Australian Ladybird to the Galapagos Islands with the aim of controlling a feral insect that was destroying the balance in the ecosystem. Through her firsthand experience and the help of cute hand puppets she tells a fabulously quirky story that helps children understand basic ecology. This Science Communicator program is part of a series of school incursions developed to highlight the underpinning role that culture plays in shaping human progress, presented in partnership with the Royal Society of Victoria.
