A Conference on Restoring Ecological Processes, Ecosystems and Landscapes in a Changing World
February 5-9 2017, University of New England, Armidale
Over five days in February 2017, you are invited to the University of New England to contribute to our joint understanding of the challenges and successes in restoration, revegetation and reintroduction in a fast-changing world, with some of Australia’s and the world’s leading practitioners, scientists, consultants and advisers working in this space.
The conference includes an Indigenous NRM Symposium and Field Trip, bringing together Indigenous practitioners and managers, and those who work alongside them. Presentations will include showcases of successful restoration and NRM projects, two-way ecological research, cultural burning projects and more. Indigenous rangers, community leaders, committee members and their non-Indigenous colleagues are encouraged to attend. The field trip will visit the spectacular Wattleridge Indigenous Protected Area with talks from rangers and ecologists on natural resource management, cultural burning and the conservation of threatened species, biodiversity and cultural values.
