Do you need to know (and keep up to date with) the latest in fire and land management, fire, soils and climate change, fire & risk, fire science and fire management techniques? Then discover Bushfire 2016 for yourself! Set to be the premier Bushfire Event of 2016, this national conference will be held on 28th to 30 September 2016.
Hosted and coordinated by the South East Queensland Fire and Biodiversity Consortium (SEQ Fire and Biodiversity Consortium), Bushfire 2016 will be an engaging, informative and inspiring conference squarely aimed at connecting fire scientists, ecologists and students with onground fire operators, public land managers, land managers (e.g. natural resources, weed/pest, biodiversity), utility operators, planners and other fire and environmental professionals.
SEQFBC Manager Dr Samantha Lloyd said that “with a focus on applied fire ecology, fire management research, Traditional Owner fire projects and collaborative fire programs, we aim to showcase successful partnerships that translate science into practice for beneficial onground fire management and environmental outcomes, whilst supporting land owners, land managers and scientists.”
“Bushfire 2016 is a chance to engage and network with Australia’s best fire scientists and onground managers – an opportunity to learn something new and build invaluable partnerships.”
Bushfire 2016 offers two days of concurrent sessions set in the beautiful grounds of the University of Queensland, with a catered poster session on the Wednesday evening, an informal dinner on the Thursday night and field trips to beautiful North Stradbroke Island and the Sunshine Coast on the Friday. We encourage you to join our mailing list to ensure you receive updates and alerts (visit: www.fireandbiodiversity.org.au).
We look forward to seeing you there!
