As part of our series of free legal information seminars, join us for LawJam3 where we will be discussing the controversial topic of biodiversity offsets.
- When: Monday, 3 February, 6.00pm to 8.00pm
- Where: New Farm Library public meeting room. 135 Sydney Street.
Biodiversity offsetting, or 'bio-compensation' put quite simply, is the process where developers who damage or destroy a habitat of conservational value must then buy or develop a ‘bio-credit’ to compensate for that loss elsewhere.
EDO Qld's Education Solicitor Evan Hamman will shed some light on Queensland’s current offsets policies and then our special guest speaker, Conservation Scientist at WWF-Australia Martin Taylor, will discuss offsets in the context of vegetation and the Great Barrier Reef.
If you attended LawJam1 or 2, this will be new information – and you know it will be good! If it’s your first time, here’s your chance to enjoy a free, informal seminar on environmental law in the public interest, EDO Qld-style.
RSVP by Fri 31 January 2014 to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (07) 3211 4466.
