Members of our environmental consulting team are excited to be attending the inaugural WA Threatened Species Forum in Geraldton today and tomorrow (the 30th and 31st of October 2015).

Natural Resource Management WA (NRMWA) and Western Australia’s seven regional NRM groups, together with the Department of Parks and Wildlife are organising the inaugural event.

The inaugural event will bring together a cross-section of society with a common concern for Western Australia’s animals and plants.

The conference aims to explore solutions, and promote practical and effective ways of tackling threats to their survival, while also building and enhancing networks of support in the field of threatened species conservation.

The WA Threatened Species Forum will provide an opportunity to update delegates on the priorities of current national, state and regional threatened species strategies; and an opportunity for delegates to share information on activities and interventions, science and solutions for protecting and recovering Western Australia’s threatened plants and animals.

The forum will seek alignment and synergies between policies and practices at multiple levels of government, businesses, research institutions, scientific and conservation management experts, non-government organisations and others active in threatened species conservation.

This forum will raise the profile of threatened species and their conservation in Western Australia, explore solutions, and promote practical and effective ways of tackling the threats to Australia’s animals and plants.
