Biodiversity And Conservation in Brisbane

16th May 2023

Conservation biology research will come in the spotlight at the International Congress for Conservation Biology, set to take place at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre (BCEC) in 2025.

Reef restoration on The Great Barrier Reef, special planning for renewable energy and First People’s knowledge for land and sea management will be the main focus of over 1,500 researchers and practitioners.

The choice of the city was a logical one as it boasts the University of Queensland (where the critical mass of conservation biology research is based) as well as James Cook University and the University of Queensland (regularly ranking in the top 10 for environmental, ecological and conservation research globally).

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said: “Brisbane is one of Australia’s greenest cities and the most biodiverse capital city in Australia, globally recognised for our natural environment and bold strides in sustainability. Home to the brightest minds, cutting-edge innovation and a collaborative business environment, Brisbane is also one of the most business-friendly cities in the world.”
