Native Veg Forum - Armidale

21st Jan 2015

Native Vegetation management has been a highly polarised policy area in New South Wales

and other states for decades. The aim of the forum is to promote a balanced discussion that

encourages stakeholders to find common ground and constructive strategies to protect

biodiversity, support agriculture and sustain regional communities.

Speakers include the NSW Minister for the Environment, The Hon. Rob Stokes MP; Dr Neil

Byron, Chair of the Review of Biodiversity Legislation in NSW; a farmer who has been

impacted by Vegetation regulations; an ecologist and an agricultural consultant.

The forum wants to hear your voice through the Discussion Session moderated by Professor
