Interesting quotes from Great Eastern Ranges Convention

Quote of the Conference at Great Eastern Range Connect 2022 in Brisbane: ‘Your science is world leading but your policy is shit’. That’s from Gary Tabor – Exec. Director of the Centre for Large Landscape Conservation in Montana, regarding our plight here in Australia. Bugger, I think he’s right. From the world’s first ‘National Wildlife Corridor Plan’ in 2012 (effectively binned after the election in 2013) to being global laggards has been a traumatic journey for many of us working at landscape scale, but you know what, we’re still here and still growing.

Especially good to sit proudly through a great presentation from Gondwana Link Chair and GER Board Member Virginia Young on why our work is so crucial globally in tackling climate change and its impacts.
