Threatened Plants Translocation Information Day - Tuesday 1 August, 9.30am - 5pm, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney. 

This free event is being organised by the ANPC and the Threatened Species Recovery Hub, with support from the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage and the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

Join local and national experts for a range of presentations on provenance, orchids, the science of translocation, licensing, policy and numerous case studies. Download the draft program here.

The day will cover the "how to" of threatened plant translocation, and present a range of case studies (including on Persoonia pauciflora and Wollemia nobilis). Speakers will include Lucy Commander (ANPC), Jen Silcock (University of Queensland), Leonie Monks (Department of Parks and Wildlife, WA), Cathy Offord (Australian Botanic Garden), Tony Auld (OEH) and more.

The day is aimed at people planning threatened plant translocations in NSW, in particular Saving our Species project coordinators with species for which translocation (and or population augmentation and or establishment of new populations) has been identified as an action. The event is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about translocation.

Register for the workshop here! For more information, please e-mail Heidi Zimmer and put "translocation info day" in the subject line.
