July Speaker - Stefan Burger

Stefan is an Australian naturalist and environmental consultant living in Chile. He has an academic background in Applied Sciences and developed a fascination for cacti and other exotic plants from a young age. Stefan now facilitates habitat tours in South America, works in conservation and independently researches cacti and desert ecology.

In this presentation, Stefan takes us on the high road into the Andes to discover otherworldly plants and landscapes. The Spanish word "Altiplano" translates to “High Plain” in English and is the world’s second largest area of high mountain plateau after Tibet. The Altiplano territory spans across Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile, where the fascinating topography is home to a diversity of cactus genera, including Oreocereus, Browningia, Neowerdermannia, Soehrensia, Haageocereus, Leucostele, Cumulopuntia, Maihueniopsis, Austrocylindropuntia, Yavia, Aylostera, Lobivia, Airampoa and Corryocactus. Many other botanical alpine wonders such as Azorella compacta and native wildflowers and animals also call the Altiplano territory and associated foothills home.
