Biolinks Alliance is thrilled to be hosting Gary’s visit, sharing his deep experience of protecting and re-connecting habitat over thousands of kilometres.
Gary co-founded the trailblazing Yellowstone to Yukon conservation initiative, established the Kibale National Park in Uganda and established the World Banks Mountain Gorilla Conservation Trust. He is currently the Executive Director of the Centre for Large Landscape Conservation in the United States.
With 150 native species threatened with extinction in central Victoria we need new ways to tackle the problem.
He has much to offer us as we pursue our ambitious vision to re-connect habitat across central Victoria
Come and be inspired and hear how we all need to be, and can be, part of the solution in central Victoria.
Doors will open at 5.30 pm for a 6.00 pm start. Drinks will be available from 5.30. Come and chat with others before the talk. Reservations are essential. Despite tickets being free to Members of the Alliance we ask Members to book to assist with seating and catering.
Connecting and Protecting habitat from Yellowstone to Yukon so people and nature can thrive.
The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative is a trans-border non-profit organisation that connects and protects the landscape, some 2,000 miles (3,200km) of it, to support the health of people, wildlife and nature. It is no simple task, but together with their supporters and over 125 partners they are making it happen.
Since large landscape conservation involves great geographical scales and touches many lives, it requires a collaborative effort—not something one organization can fully shoulder alone.
