Actions and Detail Panel
Nature in our liveable city: past, present and future
Thu. 25 February 2016, 6:00 pm – 7:45 pm AEDT
While Melbourne is frequently awarded most liveable city status, what’s it like for all the little things, from miniscule plant life to the mighty Powerful Owl, that also call the city home?
With BioBlitz 2016 happening on 4-5 March, a panel of some of our brightest talent will get you excited about all our quirky little neighbours. Who are they and where do they live? What’s their destiny facing urban densification and climate change and what do we know about our biodiversity pre-European settlement?
