Can we save our great forests and the incredible beauty, wonder and biodiversity that makes up their precious ecosystems?
On the eve of Threatened Species Day we are holding an event you cannot afford to miss.
Professor David Lindenmayer AO is based at the Fenner School of Environment and Society at ANU. He is also the world’s leading expert in natural resource management, conservation, science and biodiversity conservation and foremost expert on Australia’s native forests. He is also a multi-award winning researcher and author on biodiversity and conservation and a member of the Australian Academy of Science and a Fellow of the Ecological Society of America.
Prof Lindenmayer will outline the state of our native forests and explain the drivers of forest and species loss and the increase in fire threat. This discussion will raise issues of the role of government and VicForests in the ever increasing threat to our iconic native flora and fauna and most important ecosystems.
This is a rare opportunity to hear Australia’s leading expert in forest conservation.
We look forward to seeing you there.
