Pursuing the theme of Who is John Weigel, our latest Australian Big Year
birder, I am advised that he is indeed the Director of the Australian
Reptile Park (presumably on a year-long sabbatical). A little Web searching
produced the following (no mention of birding interests?).

Perhaps John might like to join Birding-aus (if he isn't a member already)
and tell us all a little more about his Big Year?? Or Sean Dooley might like
to contact him (surely?) and encourage him to contribute to Australian


>From the Australian Reptile Park website:


A management team is formed to steer the Reptile Park, which includes future
owners John and Robyn Weigel.



John and Robyn Weigel become principal owners of the business, and make the
decision to relocate the Park.

herpetology, and snake venom production.
