Showcase captured for all

Showcase captured for all

Monday, 14 November 2016

Just a snapshot of the breadth of research taking place within out Hub was presented to a packed house of departmental and other stakeholders in Canberra last month.

Designed to display the cutting-edge science that can help shape policy and management decisions and protect Australia’s threatened species, the open session was addressed by 10 of our researchers.

These included:
How many feral cats are there in Australia?
Associate Professor Sarah Legge, Australian National University
Predators and parasites of endangered hollow nesting birds
Professor Rob Heinsohn, Australian National University
Better offsets for threatened species
Megan Evans, University of Queensland
Malleefowl fox baiting adaptive management experiment
Dr Darren Southwell, University of Melbourne
Bilby monitoring with Martu: bringing together traditional knowledge and conservation science
Dr Anja Skroblin, University of Melbourne
Monitoring reintroductions at Booderee
Dr Natasha Robinson, Australian National University
Environmental Accounts
Professor David Lindenmayer, Australian National University
Improving threatened species translocation outcomes through genetic strategies
Dr Andrew Weeks, University of Melbourne
What value does the community place on threatened species protection?
Professor Dave Pannell, University of Western Australia
National effort towards feral cat control
Richard Faulkner, RMIT University
 Red hot red list
Professor Stephen Garnett, Charles Darwin University

Acting Hub Director Brendan Wintle says the Showcase will become an annual event.

“It was extremely well received, and such an opportunity to present our research to such a large group of influential policy makers and conservation practitioners is invaluable,” Brendan said.

If you missed attending the Hub’s Science for saving species showcase, presentations are now available for viewing online.

Presentations are available via the Hub’s YouTube channel, National Environmental Science Programme TSR Hub, and the TSR Hub website.
