Conserving mature trees for wildlife - Sutton

Printer-friendly version
14 Aug 2018 - 7:30pm
Sutton Landcare Group are holding the next meeting at Sutton Public School on Tuesday 14 August 2018 at 7:30pm.
Our guest speaker will be Dr Darren Le Roux from the ACT Parks and Conservation Service. 
Dr Le Roux’s research has identified that urban greenspace supports far fewer mature native trees, tree hollows, dead trees, logs, litter, shrubs and regenerating seedlings than in adjacent nature reserves. He argues: “We can’t expect wildlife to persist in our urban landscapes without first ensuring that the necessary habitat structures they depend upon for survival are retained and protected.”
His ongoing research aims to formulate innovative management strategies that will guide habitat protection policies, assist on-the-ground wildlife conservation efforts and help mitigate ongoing urban development impacts in the urban landscape, making the concrete jungle more sustainable and habitable for future generations of wildlife.
Following the presentation, supper will be provided and an opportunity to talk further with Dr Le Roux.
