ESA 2019 Ecology: Science for practical solutions

Launceston, Tasmania

Ecology is the science of interactions among all forms of life and the abiotic environment they inhabit, and in turn, change and shape. Applications of ecology are all around us everyday, in natural resource management, forestry, fisheries, agriculture, water production and conservation biology. These applications demonstrate the importance of ecology in seeking to understand and explain our Earth, and how humans can better co-exist with nature in an increasingly anthropogenically-modified environment. This provides the theme for this conference: how the science of ecology can contribute to developing and implementing solutions for our planet in the throes of a biodiversity crisis and a changing climate. Ecological science is fundamental to informing policy but the next generation of practising ecologists will need to work more closely with economists, political scientists, historians, human geographers and social scientists to develop ecologically sustainable practices.

The SEQFBC would like to highlight the Practitioner Engagement for Onground Outcomes - Symposium: This symposium is intended to highlight the crucial role of ecological practitioners and the value of collaborative projects that link research and onground application through stakeholder and practitioner engagement. The symposium will have presentations from practitioners and researchers on the value of partnerships between these two linked professional sectors, and the challenges and successes they have experienced in researching and/or implementing evidence-based applied research.

National Caring for Country Conference 2019

Darwin, Northern Territory

The 2019 National Indigenous Caring for Country Conference encompasses the belief that living on country positively impacts on Aboriginal & Torres Straits Islander peoples’ health and well-being. With the challenges of climate change nowadays, our caring for country traditions and methods are receiving greater recognition in partnership with various sectors in government, NGOs, community and in the private sector. The conference highlights that caring for country encompasses the holistic meanings and values of Indigenous people throughout Australia. However, caring for country for both land and sea is everyone’s business and should not be just an Indigenous tradition, but is a shared responsibility of all people in the world.
The conference themes include:
  • Health & Well-being
  • Indigenous Land Treaty Rights
  • Indigenous peoples as custodians and stewards of the land
  • Land Management
  • Water & marine management
  • Environmental impact on food sustainability
  • Food sovereignty  
  • Technology & Innovations
