Event description

Description

The time for wildlife movement solutions to be common practice is well overdue. This forum gives focus to the next steps for action.

At this event we're broadening the fauna movement solutions discussion to more than just road issues. In talking about 'barriers' we're referring to any aspect that provides a challenge / impasse for wildlife. And 'bridges' refers to any method that provides a link for wildlife.

This forum aims to:
- be a tool for getting the research and experiences in front of decision makers
- investigate the pathway for successful implementation
- explore latest innovations and trends in fauna movement solutions
- understand the role that all groups can play to achieve solutions

Who should attend?
Urban planners, universities (academics/students of ecology etc), catchment/community groups, and representatives from all levels of government.

Includes morning tea.

This forum is sponsored by the Transurban Community Grant.

  • Professor Darryl Jones - Griffith University
