Listen to Look at Me

Season 2 of the Look at Me podcast is here!

Tune in for weird and wonderful tales of Australian wildlife. Co-hosted by science journalist Rae Johnston and ecologist Chris McCormack

What is Look at Me?

ACF has teamed up with Remember The Wild and Guardian Australia for a second series of Look at Me, launching 10 March, 2022.

Each week, we'll bring you a new episode featuring some of Australia's lesser-known, but no-less-fascinating wildlife – like superpowered sea slugs, a butterfly that has groupies, and a marsupial mouse with a bizarre sex life.

Listen on the Guardian website, or subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or your favourite podcast app. Just search for Look at Me.
