The impact of urbanisation on native ecosystems in cities is often extreme. Any attempt at their conservation is hard and difficult. The patches of habitat that remain are often highly disturbed, weedy and small. So why do conservation work under these conditions ? What does it mean for biodiversity and for people? Are there special opportunities that we have in cities?
Danielle Shanahan, Director of Zealandia’s Centre for People and Nature, will explore these questions, drawing on examples from across the Oceania region.
Participants will have the opportunity to add their views during a facilitated discussion on what biodiversity means for Wellingtonians.
This seminar is co-hosted by Zealandia and Forest & Bird Wellington Branch
