Fenner Forum Series 2016 - Finding the Wild Things in Canberra

Art Work Ed Rydclyffe

Please note: The audio recording of this event is now available.

The first Forum for 2016 - in our Fenner Fora is entitled Finding the Wild Things in Canberra;  Urban Ecology in and around Canberra.    

A growing band of Fenner landscape ecologists is researching the relationships between habitat and wildlife in and around Canberra. We are learning how wildlife responds to residential development at the urban/woodland edge and what we need to do to maintain urban biodiversity over time. This first Fenner Forum for 2016 will provide a snapshot of our exciting research, including important habitat structures, innovation in urban habitat management, roles for citizen science and the ecological effectiveness of nature reserves.

The forum will also explore the important role of the Mulligan’s Flat Woodland experiment, to guide future restoration of habitats in our region.

The event will be followed by light refreshments.  Please RSVP fennerschool-events@anu.edu.au
