4th Annual National Invasive Species Forum
Participants from all levels of government, indigenous organizations, businesses, professionals, academia and non-profits are all invited to discuss and identify shared approaches to stop the introduction and spread of invasive species to Canada's landscapes.
Keynote Presentation: Australia’s Evolving Biosecurity – Integrating the Environment into an Agricultural-based System; Andrew Cox, Invasive Species Council of Australia
Andrew has more than 25 years experience serving the natural environment and leading environmental organisations.He has led community-based campaigns to protect threatened bushland areas, worked for the National Parks Association of NSW as its executive officer, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and Trust for Nature (Victoria) and is a respected participant in Australia’s conservation sector.
Andrew believes that invasive species, along with climate change, is one of this century’s two greatest threats to Australia’s natural environment yet invasive species are without the high-level attention they deserve.
He is confident that if we learn from the litany of invasive species disasters of the past and bring a science-based approach to the complex and seemingly daunting threat of invasive species, we can make progress. He believes in the value of involving the community in tackling complex environmental issues. Andrew was appointed as CEO of the Invasive Species Council in 2014 after serving as its president for two years.
