This evening will be an exciting opportunity to view a screening of several engaging films showcasing successful ecological restorations from around the world. Following this will be a Q&A session.

The films have all been specifically chosen to demonstrate how much can be achieved in ecological restoration projects across a diverse range of regions, with the third film using an example of woodland restoration being undertaken in the Australian Capital Territory.

The Q&A session, which will include an expert panel of three ecologists all specialising in ecological restoration, will give the audience the opportunity to ask questions and participate in an open discussion between industry experts, professionals and the general public.
