Knowledge exchange for people interested in landscape‐ scale planning for biodiversity

There is increasing interest in Tasmania and Australia‐wide in managing biodiversity at a landscape scale.

To help improve communication and collaboration, a series of ‘knowledge exchange’ events will be held to discuss recent research findings, introduce new tools and mapping layers, identify knowledge gaps and data needs and workshop future projects.

Who can come?

You! Anyone with an interest in landscape management of biodiversity is welcome. This includes researchers, practitioners, consultants, policy makers and those who are just interested…

People interested in attending can just arrive on the night, but it would be appreciated if they could let Kerry Bridle (Kerry.Bridle@utas.edu.au) know so wine and cheese can be ordered accordingly. We ask for a donation to help cover costs for the event.
