As the principal fundraising event of the year, SIMS is immensely grateful for your support, and the support of all our partners and sponsors.
The 2018 Emerald Dinner promises a great
night of entertainment not least from the key presentation by Vic Peddemors and Amy Smoothey, leading shark experts who spend their summer evenings out on Sydney Harbour tagging bull
sharks with acoustic devices. Not your average job description, but one which
has enormous scientific value in terms of the development of shark management
strategies, and one which quite simply is awe inspiring.
Fantastic auction prizes on the night include a luxury trip to the Lizard Island Resort and a once in a life time experience for two people with Aurora Expeditions on their state-of-the-art purpose built expedition, the Greg Mortimer . This year, Aurora Expeditions is offering a choice between three voyages, valued at $20,000AUD.
The winning bidder will choose between experiencing the northern realms of
Svalbard, Greenland and Norway on an Arctic voyage;
discovering the wonders of the Antarctica
Peninsula, Southern Georgia and the Falkland Islands on an Antarctica expedition; or one of Aurora Expeditions
new Americas Voyage from the Chilean Fjords to
the tropical Caribbean.
Who wouldn't enjoy three nights at the luxury Lizard Island Resort on the Great Barrier Reef.
Lizard Island is an
indulgent retreat offering sensational diving, snorkelling right off the beach
and a superb dining setting amongst pristine white sands and clear blue waters.
