North Queensland Threatened Species Symposium
Building on the success of our first NQ Threatened Species Symposium in 2021, we are pleased to present a second opportunity to connect with other people involved in the recovery of threatened species.
The event is co-hosted by the members of the NQ NRM Alliance (Terrain NRM, Gulf Savannah NRM & Cape York NRM), the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment & Water (DCCEEW) and the Department of Environment and Science (DES).
This event will provide a forum to network and share both western and cultural knowledge on threatened species recovery. Participants will be able to connect and engage with leading scientists, experts, professionals, Traditional Owners and community advocates in threatened species conservation in Northern Queensland.
Topics on the agenda include:
- Planners and threatened species
- Recovery planning and coordination
- On-ground actions and monitoring
- National, state and regional threatened species initiatives and prioritisation
- Volunteer mechanisms for habitat protection
- Challenges and Opportunities for Threatened Species Recovery: Presentations from Recovery Teams and Action Groups
While this event is targeted at recovery teams, action groups and Traditional Owners, all those involved in or interested in threatened species recovery in north Queensland are welcome.
