Conservation conversations: Saving our smallest species

Almost all animals are invertebrates, yet their vital role in maintaining the health of our environments and providing essential ecosystem services is systematically undervalued. These “other 99%” are under threat from a range of human activities but the need for their conservation is virtually ignored. In order to save our smallest species, we need increased public engagement, new ideas and improved collaboration between interest groups.

We are hosting a morning of “conservation conversations” to explore the future of invertebrate conservation in Australia and New Zealand. Our invited speakers will express their views on the current state of invertebrate conservation and share their innovative research. We will then have an open session (over tea and biscuits!) to facilitate the sharing of ideas among attendees.

Everyone with an interest in conservation and/or invertebrate research is welcome to attend.

If you have any questions please email Dr Lizzy Lowe lizzy.lowe@mq.edu.au
