Interested in conservation and discussing biological diversity issues with like-minded people? Join the monthly Conservation Café in Centennial Parklands.
This Saturday 7 November 2015 you can join us to highlight another great project or program being undertaken in the Sydney Region and beyond. Conservation Café is hosted by the Sydney-Society for Conservation Biology to celebrate and learn about the incredible work being done by our region’s conservation professionals and volunteers over a cup of coffee and a chat.
This month’s guest speaker!
This month’s guest speaker is Dr John Martin, wildlife ecologist with the Botanic Gardens & Centennial Parklands.
John has worked over the last decade on ecological research and management projects with a focus on urban ecology and human—wildlife conflict.
His PhD research on the Australian white ibis in the Sydney area is an example of combining these two areas.
More recently John coordinated the flying-fox dispersal from the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, this program aimed to conserve the living botanical collection within the garden whilst not impacting a nationally listed vulnerable species. This was a major project with over $1 million spent on the implementation and associated research.
Complimentary tea, coffee and pastries provided by Sydney-SCB with re-usable cups available for purchase with proceeds going towards our conservation projects.
