The South East Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium (SEQFBC) are thrilled to be partnering with ESA to offer this specialist forum at ESA 2018 in Brisbane. Coordinated by the SEQFBC, the SEQFBC Fire Science Forum (the Forum) is squarely aimed at connecting fire scientists, ecologists and students with onground fire operators, land managers & other fire professionals. With a focus on local research, collaborative fire programs & the relationship between fire & private land conservation, the Forum will showcase applied fire ecology & management research & private land partnerships that translate science into practice for beneficial onground outcomes.

The South East Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium

Established in 1998, the SEQFBC partners together with 19 stakeholder organisations to support private landholders, public land managers, utility providers and fire agencies to improve onground fire management and biodiversity conservation, and build landholder/manager capacity through engagement, training, technical expertise and research. The SEQFBC strives to translate science into practice for onground land and fire managers by facilitating fire science in the SEQ region, supporting student research (via a Research Student Scholarship Program) and providing regular fire science updates. In 2016, the SEQFBC hosted and coordinated the national bushfire conference, Bushfire 2016: Connecting Science, People and Practice, sponsored by ESA, the event was highly successful and attended by over 330 people. For more information visit: www.fireandbiodiversity.org.au

Keynote Speaker: Richard Geddes, National Fire Program Manager with Bush Heritage Australia (see flier above for featured speakers).

Can you cater for my Dietary requirements?

Special dietary choices have been provided. In your registration process please ensure you choose the most appropriate for your needs. While we have created some choices we can not however cater for people with severe food allergies.

People with severe food allergies can react to tiny traces of certain food types inadvertently present in ingredients or on cooking utensils.

Light meals, morning and afternoon teas are prepared by various caterers and each sources food and ingredients from many different suppliers. It is not feasible to test or control every ingredient and utensil used in preparing every meal to the level of being able to guarantee there will be no traces of an allergen substance present.

We do have a selection of special meal options available, however please note that we are not able to cater for individual requests for specific food items (outside of those listed in the registration page) to be included or excluded from any of our meals.

Self catering

If you require absolute certainty of an allergen-free meal, you're welcome to bring your own meal to the Event. However, because of limited facilities, we are not able to heat meals that you bring with you, nor are we able to refrigerate your meal in case the container should become contaminated with other food in the event kitchen.
