Annual General Meeting
Tuesday 5 March from 18:00 to 21:00
Guest speaker: Dr Hugh Finn, Chair of the Board, Environmental Defenders Office
Title: “The Invisible Harm: Land Clearing and the Welfare of Our Native Fauna”
Hugh puts the view that another reason to avoid clearing and another reason to value native vegetation is the harm that land clearing causes to individual wild animals. Hugh will also be happy to deal with any questions about the legal framework for clearing native vegetation.
