WA is home to unique plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. But every year the number of endangered species grows, and the available habitat for wildlife shrinks. In many places the expanding exploitation of natural resources and shifts in climate pose unprecedented threats to our ecosystems.
We need bold, urgent and decisive action, with new ways of thinking and working together to tackle these environmental challenges and protect our precious wildlife and biodiversity in a rapidly changing environment.
Join CCWA for our next Environment Matters event as we give an overview of the current state of conservation in WA and hear from our line-up of guest speakers on the all-important question – where to from here?
This is a free event and light refreshments will be provided.
We’ll be hearing from our guest speakers:
- Dr Nic Dunlop – CCWA Chief Ecologist
- Emeritus Professor Michael Calver – Editor in Chief of Pacific Conservation Biology
- Dr Mike Bamford - Bamford Consulting Ecologists
- And more to be announced!
In the face of significant challenges, this will be a hopeful dialogue centred on solutions and a vision for the future.
This is a COVID-Safe event following the latest health advice.
