Join the WA conservation sector for an evening of public discussion about the future of our wildlife.
How will recently proposed policies, such as the Biodiversity Conservation Bill, the Green Growth Plan, and the expansion of Roe 8 - halted but by no means completely averted - impact on our wildlife? How will critically endangered species, such as the black cockatoos, fare under this environmental regime? What, if anything, do these measures do to ensure all species are protected, in a range of ecosystems, from our urban bushlands to the lush forests of the south-west? What are the environmental, legal and policy implications and long-term consequences of these policies should they go ahead?
This panel discussion will examine the WA government's environmental agenda as it relates to wildlife protection and biodiversity conservation. Hear from expert panel speakers about the recent proposals:
- Professor John Bailey, chair of the Leeuwin Group of Scientists, School of Environmental Science, Murdoch University
- Professor Pierre Horwitz, School of Natural Sciences, Edith Cowan University
- Piers Verstegen, Director, Conservation Council WA
- Jenita Enevoldsen (MC), State Director, The Wilderness Society
