Conservation In Cities: Why It Is Hard & Why We Do It

12/06/2019 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Conservation in cities is hard. The impacts of urbanisation on native ecosystems are extremely high and hard to overcome, and the remaining patches of habitat are often highly disturbed, weedy and small.

So why do we do conservation in these landscapes? What does it mean for biodiversity, and for people? 

Join Dr Danielle Shanahan, Director of ZEALANDIA’s Centre for People and Nature, as she explores these questions, drawing on examples from across the Oceania region.


Wednesdays: Join us for Storytime & Buggies Go Bush

Weekends & Public Holidays: Check out our Summer Talks.

Daily: ZEALANDIA runs a variety of guided tours every day.
