'Moving house - a new age for plant translocation and restoration'
Sorry, registrations have now closed.
The Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research (CANBR) at CSIRO, and the Australian Network for Plant Conservation are pleased to present the 12th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference (APCC12).
Join us for a week of exciting presentations, local field trips and a 1-day threatened plant translocation workshop! View the Registration Fees here.
To coincide with the release of the Third edition of the ANPC’s Threatened Plant Translocation Guidelines, APCC12 will bring conservation researchers and practitioners together from across Australia to discuss the recent advances and latest scientific findings for successful threatened plant translocations. Species translocations have been an important conservation approach for more than two decades to save threatened species from extinction. With no foreseeable reduction in threats from climate change, urban and agricultural expansion and intensification, and invasive pests and diseases, translocations will be increasingly important into the future.
APCC12 will bring together a diverse range of the leading botanists, ecologists, land managers, and on-ground plant conservation workers from around Australia, from universities, government, consultancies, NRM groups and NGOs The conference is a key event for plant conservation specialists and students to exchange ideas and make new contacts.
The biennial Australasian Plant Conservation Conference has become the premier event in Australia to discuss plant conservation issues with a variety of groups from practitioners to researchers. The last conference was successfully hosted in Melbourne, November 2016.
APCC12 is promoting the 2019 ANPC calendar featuring 12 threatened plants from the ACT Region, to highlight some of the many endangered plants in and around the territory.
