Dr Hugh Finn Lecture at the Curtin Law School, Acting Convener for the Environmental Defender's Office of WA
Dave Sweeney, Australian Conservation Foundation to MC the event
The event will be a great opportunity to learn about our unique wildlife, biodiversity and ecology. We will discuss how our current laws have failed our wildlife, and how the landmark Yeelirrie court case aims to uphold environmental laws and prevent extinction.
Western Australia is home to unique animals and wildlife that exist nowhere else on Earth. From the charismatic numbat and black cockatoo to the elusive underground creatures of the desert, these species all deserve protection.
But for many of our animals, survival is the exception rather than the rule. Faced with ongoing clearing, logging, burning, and destruction of habitat, scientists say that many unique species may become extinct within our lifetimes if things don’t change fast.
Can you spare and hour or two to help us with phone banking?
Full training will be given in a fun and enjoyable space at the Conservation Council office. Script, phones and food will available! Wednesday 13th February from 4 - 8pm.
