Landscapes and land use, a pictorial review of our protected lands
29 July, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join Wildlife Queensland Bayside Branch to experience 50 years of travelling around Australia!
Land use has a major effect on Australia’s natural environment through its impacts on water, soil, nutrients, plants and wildlife. How much of the Australian landscape is protected, and what are the trends in land use? In this pictorial review of our protected lands, Wildlife Queensland Bayside Branch member Simon Baltais will explore the current state of land use in Australia reflecting upon 50 years of travelling around the country. Learn about and see:
- stunning protected landscapes and wildlife
- work that has been undertaken by governments, NGOs, indigenous communities, farmers and individuals who strive to protect our landscapes and the wildlife and flora within them
- threats and guidance on the simple things individuals can do to help protect these landscapes
- recent decisions made by councils to challenge indigenous claims to their traditional lands and waters and the implications these decisions will have on environmental outcomes.
