While working with the World Wide Fund for Nature Australia (WWF), I organised and convened the 1998 South-East Queensland Rainforest Recovery Conference, titled Rainforest Recovery for the New Millennium. The conference brought together landholders, government bodies, scientists and Landcare and conservation groups to share their knowledge of rainforest conservation issues and the range of recovery work underway.
The conference was a unique event, with the purpose of advancing recovery plans for whole ecosystems, rather than just individual plant and animal species. One of Australia’s first multi-species recovery planning projects, the South-East Queensland Rainforest Recovery Project, was subsequently initiated (for further information on this project see South-East Queensland Rainforest Recovery News).
