The Translocation Workshop will provide an overview of the ANPC's new 3rd edition of the Guidelines for the Translocation of Threatened Plants in Australia and feature presentations on many aspects of translocation including seeds, genetics, policy, approvals processes, translocation proposals, implementation and monitoring. Opportunities for questions, discussion and networking will also enable information-sharing.
Speakers will include some who have contributed to the new Guidelines including David Coates, Margaret Byrne and Leonie Monks from the Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions (DBCA), as well as Lucy Commander, Translocation Project Officer with the ANPC.
This Workshop will be relevant to all those who are involved in any aspect of threatened plant translocation including decision making, proposals, research, preparation, implementation and monitoring, as well as all those interested in threatened plants, ecological restoration and plant conservation (including DBCA staff, researchers working on threatened species, NRM groups, NGOs, the mining industry and environmental consultants).
