Understanding what our people need in order to deliver what communities expect is no simple task. Working together is how we will deliver the best results. AFAC17 will focus on how we can work together to improve our performance, what leading the way looks like and who will benefit from our collective effort.

EcoTAS 2017

Hunter Valley NSW

The theme of EcoTAS 2017, ‘Putting ecology to work’, is a call to focus on how ecological science can contribute to the economy, society, culture and public policy, as well as to the health of the environment and quality of life. As ecologists, we should identify and communicate the impact of our work and the tangible benefits it can deliver. By making this the theme for EcoTAS 2017, we aim to highlight the significant impact that ecology has in the wider world and how we can best harness the diverse nature of ecological research.
