Explore the majesty and mystery of the natural world with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ed Yong.

Protecting nature isn’t just about saving whales or pandas or what have you. It’s about protecting even things that are close to us… because each of those things has a unique way of experiencing the world, that is worth learning about, worth cherishing and worth protecting.’

For Spring Fling, acclaimed science journalist Ed Yong takes us beyond the limits of human perception to uncover the world through the eyes of animals.

An Immense World: How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us explores the boundless sensory environments animals occupy, offering a reminder of the intricacies of nature and how little we truly know about the planet we inhabit. In this remarkable book, Yong brings to bear the same clear-eyed insight that earned him a Pulitzer Prize for his COVID-19 coverage for The Atlantic.

Now, Yong arrives in Melbourne for a revelatory conversation with Guardian Australia nature columnist Helen Sullivan, live at The Capitol.
