WA Threatened Species Forum

The WA Threatened Species forum, in Geraldton on 30 - 31 October 2015, is a unique collaboration between Western Australia's seven regional NRM groups, together with the Department of Parks and Wildlife.

The inaugural event will bring together a cross-section of society with a common concern for Western Australia's animals and plants to explore solutions, and promote practical and effective ways of tackling threats to their survival, while also building and enhancing networks of support in the field of threatened species conservation.

With special guest Gregory Andrews (Australia's Threatened Species Commissioner) the forum will seek alingment and synergies between policies and practices at multiple levels of government, businesses, research institutions, scientific and conservation management experts, non-government organisations and others active in threatened species conservation.
