You're invited to the South East environment webinar series

September is Biodiversity Month so we’re serving up some science with your sandwich each Wednesday.

The humid eucalypt forests of NSW are internationally unique.

To mark this important month the Biodiversity and Conservation Division is running a lunchtime webinar series to showcase the work of the South East Region.

It’s your chance to hear from our team and partners about their fascinating field work.

Discover what goes on behind the scenes to protect our threatened species and coastal landscapes. And find out how you can help protect biodiversity.
