Applied Ecology Resources is a novel information repository to preserve, share and discover information on the management of biodiversity and the environment which will be launching in full soon.
Join us for a series of free, interactive, online workshops covering a range of useful topics for applied ecologists and practitioners.
Workshops will take place once a month and will be 45 mins long, with an interactive Q&A session.
Our next workshop will be:
What does it take to eradicate invasive species from islands?
Wednesday 21 April 20:00 BST / 09:00 HST / 15:00 EDT
by Dr Patricia Baiao, Island Conservation
Islands offer incredible opportunities for the complete removal of damaging invasive species and eradication is a proven tool that has been used all around the world with inspiring outcomes for native species and ecosystems. The principles of eradication have been derived from projects worldwide and applied broadly, but each eradication is nested within complex social-political contexts that need to be incorporated into planning and implementation.
This workshop is sponsored by Wildlife Acoustics.
