Threatened Species Symposium

JOIN US IN PERSON OR ONLINE: 16-17 FEB

We’d love you to be part of the North Queensland Threatened Species Symposium on 16-17 February.

The two-day event is at the Cairns Colonial Club with 150 invited guests – and we are also extending a big welcome to everyone who can join us online.  Parts of the event will be live-streamed via Terrain NRM’s Facebook page (see below) and will also be accessible later as Facebook videos. Many presentations will also be available on Terrain’s YouTube channel at a later date.

The symposium will include Australia’s leading scientists and researchers in the field of threatened species, as guest speakers, along with Threatened Species Commissioner Sally Box and members of local recovery groups.
