Why Urban Bushland is Valuable

 When making planning and conservation decisions, it is crucial to value natural systems competently. Failure to do so can lead to their misuse and destruction. 

Focusing on Lake Claremont as an example, Paul will discuss the significant benefits that accrue to the community through their efforts to restore this native wetland. 

Dr Hardisty is currently the CEO of the Australian Institute of Marine Science and has over 30 years of experience working in government and industry.
