Avoiding crisis management
Wildlife conservation only attracts attention when it involves a crisis or emergency. Yet delivering conservation for species on the brink of extinction is time- and option-limited, expensive, and the risk of failure catastrophic.
In Tasmania, we have all the tools and community support to save one of the world’s most endangered and intriguing little birds — so what’s stopping us?
Our speaker, Dr Sally Bryant AM, is Hon. Research Fellow, Tasmanian Land Conservancy and Chair of the Forty-spotted Pardalote National Recovery Program.
Conrgatulating Sally on her recent appointment as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), the Tasmanian Land Conservancy described her contribution in this way: ‘Professionally and personally, Sally has dedicated her life to the conservation of Tasmanian wildlife and the habitats that support it. Her broad-reaching scientific knowledge, influence and understanding of endangered and threatened species has helped protect and conserve Tasmania’s wildlife, from quolls and beetles to the forty-spotted pardalote. Through her warmth and her down-to-earth attitude, Sally has connected countless Tasmanians to nature, changing attitudes and opening eyes to the species who share this island with us.’
Do come along to hear Sally speak.
