Geography in Conversation

Guest speakers, Dr Geoff Heard, Science Advisor for the Threatened Species Index (TSX) at the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN). The TSX integrates long-term monitoring data for Australia’s threatened species to estimate abundance trends. A key focus of Geoff’s role is assisting to get the hard-won data of Australia’s ecologists into the TSX, including working with data providers to generate reliable time-series of abundance or occurrence rate from their data. Two endangered species projects will be covered. Sheena Gillman, BirdLife Australia Honorary Life Member, on the Eastern Bristlebird. Once common, this shy, ground-dwelling bird is now critically endangered and on the top 20 list of Australia’s most endangered bird species and David Harper, Principal Conservation Officer with the QLD Department of Environment and Science, Threatened Species Operations. Dave has been working to help conserve and recover the hairy-nosed wombat since 2006.
