2018-2019 season premiere! Two great talks, trivia, and fun new features including a nerdy door prize!

Talk # 1: Tales (Tails!) from the front line of wildlife rescue

By Victoria Badham, Toronto Wildlife Centre

TWC Answers the Call of the Wild! Come learn about the “wild” world of rehabilitation and some of the ways you can help the many species with which we share our neighbourhoods. Since 1993, Toronto Wildlife Centre (TWC) has admitted almost 100,000 sick, injured and orphaned wild animals from over 270 different species and has helped hundreds of thousands of people with wildlife situations.

Bio: Victoria Badham is the Education and Outreach Manager at TWC. She worked on the wildlife hotline for 3 years before transitioning to managing the education program and has answered calls about a wild array of situations and species. She looks forward to answering your wildlife questions at Nerd Nite!


Talk # 2: Follow Your Nose: Nostrils, Noses, and the Sense of Scents

By Lauren Shorser

Noses are great. I mean, who doesn’t love odours and breathing? But there’s a lot more to that bulbous facial protuberance than just sniffing out dinner and being a passage for air. Immune system function, social bonding, mate selection, and more are all affected by the humble nose.

Bio: Lauren Shorser is an editor, writer, and scuba diver who can be found lurking near the back of Tranzac’s main hall during Nerd Nites. She finds it unsettling to write about herself in the third person.


Admission: $10 at the door.** Doors open at 7pm.


** New admission rate Q & A:
Q: why is the price been increased?
A: The costs associated with running Nerd Nite have increased, from services to supplies.

Q: What does the money go towards?
A: Admission and raffle ticket money go towards running Nerd Nite, including trivia prizes, pens, paper, candles etc… Organizers don’t make a profit running Nerd Nite.

Q: Why an increase to $10, not $7 or $8 dollars?
A: While bumping up admission rates to $10 seems like a lot, we believe that it’s worth it. And increasing to the next bill amount makes taking money and giving change easier.

Q: What extra value will this add to Nerd Nite?
A: To make NN Toronto events even better and good value for the money, we’ll be adding new perks such as door prizes. Stay tuned for more info!

Sam & Erez believe that this season of Nerd Nite Toronto will be even better than the last and thank you for your continued support! if you have any questions, email us at
