Conservation, preservation & restoration

Greater Sydney Landcare Network a Science In Life event on Climate change and the challenge of beliefs in environmental restoration.


Science can inform Land Managers and those interested in Natural Area management and restoration. The need for preservation will challenge what we now hold dear as conservation; restoration projects will soon choose species based on their genetics.
Our speakers are at the forefront of conservation science under climate change - combining research and practice that can inform landscape restoration.
