Event description

Description

Conservation in cities is hard. The impacts of urbanisation on native ecosystems are extremely high and hard to overcome, and the remaining patches of habitat are often highly disturbed, weedy and small.

So why do we do conservation in these landscapes? What does it mean for biodiversity, and for people? Are there special opportunities that we have in cities?

Join Danielle Shanahan, Director of ZEALANDIA’s Centre for People and Nature, as she explores 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.

Doors open at 6.15pm, session starts at 6.30pm.
