Biodiversity Workshop and Field Walk

Description

In July 2011, a workshop and field walk was held at the Waddy Forest Conservation District for over 27 landholders to provide them with info on how a changing climate or changes in farming systems is affecting the invertebrate populations and ultimately, the health of their farm. Experts on birds, lizards and bugs demonstrated how increased cropping levels, larger quantities of stubble residues, stock reduction and increased insecticide usage have lead to changes in types and level of pests.                

The event was organised in response to the requests from the Waddy Forest LCDC for training of their members to engage them in activities to address NRM issues at local and/or regional level. The event was appreciated by both Waddy Forest LCDC committee and the speakers.
