We are honoured to have Emeritus Professor Philip Jennings talk about
What is happening to our environment?
We are fortunate to live in a region of mega-biodiversity. It is one of only 35 biodiversity hotspots on our planet. For more than 50,000 years the Noongar nation successfully managed this precious ecosystem through major changes in the Earth’s climate.
However, since the arrival of the new settlers, nearly 200 years ago, irreversible damage has been done to our environment, due primarily to inappropriate planning and land use practices. The results of this mismanagement are now apparent in the form of salinization, weeds, feral animals, bush fires and plant diseases.
In recent years, some attempts have been made to address these problems and this talk will discuss the successes and failures of our response.
So come along to our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 2nd March.
