The Price of Neglect: Why It’s Time to Invest in Australia’s Biodiversity

On Wednesday 12 July 2023 at Customs House, experts from diverse fields converged to discuss the vital role biodiversity plays in sustaining life, culture and the very essence of our existence.

The thought-provoking panel discussion featured CBCS-affiliated researchers Associate Professor Justine Bell-James, Dr Laura Sonter, Professor Hugh Possingham and CBCS alumnus Dr Eddie Game of The Nature Conservancy, moderated by the ABC’s Tegan Taylor.

The expert speakers explored the urgent need for investment in safeguarding Australia's natural heritage, and delivered messages of hope and pathways towards a sustainable future to foster a harmonious balance between human development and the protection of our planet’s natural world.
