ANPC WORKSHOP: Translocation of threatened plants 4 & 5 April 2013, University of the Sunshine Coast, Sippy Downs, Qld

This two day workshop will provide participants with the knowledge required to effectively plan, implement and evaluate translocation projects for threatened flora.

Questions addressed include:

  • When is it appropriate to use translocation as a tool to conserve threatened species?
  • What needs to be done when planning a translocation program?
  • How should a translocation program be implemented?
  • What ongoing management and evaluation is required?

The workshop will include case studies of translocation programs, highlighting lessons to be learnt and an optional full-day field trip to translocation recipient sites for a range of threatened plants.
