12th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference, Canberra
ANPC, Canberra, 11-15 November
'Moving House - A New Age for Plant Translocation and Restoration'
The Centre for Australian National Biodiversity Research (CANBR) at CSIRO, and the Australian Network for Plant Conservation (ANPC) are pleased to present the 12th Australasian Plant Conservation Conference (APCC12).
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.
