Tickets and the full program will be available soon - keep an eye out by visiting https://biolinksalliance.org.au/leaky-landscapes-symposium, subscribing to the Biolinks Alliance newsletter or following us on Instagram @biolinksalliance  This year’s symposium will be looking at practical approaches to fixing the damaged landscapes of central Victoria, making them more absorbent (less leaky) and so more biologically productive and better able to withstand the impacts of climate change. It will be a forum for researchers, conservation practitioners, landholders, land managers and interested community members to share information and experiences, form connections and develop collaborative and strategic approaches to ecosystem restoration that specifically aim to restore and climate-proof damaged landscapes by rebuilding soil health and water holding capacity for carbon, hydrology, productivity and biodiversity benefits, thereby improving habitat and resources for threatened species. This forum showcases the 21 st century strategies and practical case studies that have been largely missing from policy debates about local environment climate change mitigation. There is so much more that needs to be done and can be done if we work together effectively to make it happen.
