CWCN Workshop on Threatened Species
The recently published landmark UN Global Assessment Report on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services highlights the devasting impact of humans. Australia, unfortunately, is a contributor to a crisis that sees native species threatened by extinction. - Our workshop explores the reasons why some species are currently under threat and others are not. It uses a number of local case studies to explore threatening processes and the conservation initiatives required to save some local species from imminent or likely future extinction. - This promises to be a timely and highly interesting talk. Marin Fingland/Geckoes Wildlife will share insights into the state of our natural environment and leaves us with some guidance on how to improve the situation for some species. - More information and the registration form can be obtained here.

Ten workshops on topics ranging from macroinvertebrates, to mistletoes, to fungi, small mammals will be hosted until July 2019. We are celebrating local biodiversity and want to improve and share knowledge about it and on how to protect it. Take the opportunity and book in to all or some of those workshops which were made possible through a grant (Fed. Government/National Landcare Program Environment Small Grant) and sponsorship by Brisbane City Council's Community Conservation Partnerships Program as well as support by Queensland Water and Landcarers and The Local Bulltin. We are grateful to them all. Further information can be obtained by checking our our overall flyer for the program or individual flyers above.
