Long Live the Species

Friday, 22 April 2022 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
Long Live the Species, despite The EPBC Act

What if you wanted to do something, but you didn't ever spell out quite what it is you want to achieve, and you didn't put any time or energy into doing it, and you didn't reflect on your progress towards achieving it, and you never agreed to commit to it? What do you suppose would be your chances of getting it done?

That's pretty much how Australia's laws are going about protecting our native plants and animals.

Australia has the highest species extinction rates in the world. Depressing? Yes. Can we do something about it? Yes.

Anne & Kev speak with Carmel Killin about what we can do and what her community of over 200 artists have achieved already.
