This June, we were pleased to welcome Dr James Brazill-Boast to our Conservation Café. James is the Senior Project Officer for Ecosystems & Threatened Species at the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage. His primary role is in the development and implementation of the Saving Our Species program.

James told us about how the NSW government is trying to optimise conservation strategies and how they make decisions on which projects to support. Also, we found out how OEH evaluates the success of conservation projects.

It was our biggest Conservation Café yet and many new people turned up for this one. Thanks to everyone for coming along and for the great discussions!

James also gave us this link, where you can FIND OUT ABOUT CONSERVATION PROJECTS IN YOUR AREA and how you can contribute: http://www.environment.nsw.gov.au/savingourspeciesapp/
