North Queensland Threatened Species Symposium

Following the success of  our first NQ Threatened Species Symposium in 2021, we are pleased to present a second event in Cairns on 9-10 March 2023. 

The event is co-hosted by the members of the NQ NRM Alliance (Terrain NRM, Gulf Savannah NRM & Cape York NRM), the Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment & Water (DCCEEW) and the Department of Environment and Science (DES).

This event will provide a forum for people involved in recovery of threatened species to network and share both western and cultural knowledge. It builds on the success of the first symposium, bringing people together who work on a range of species and ecological communities across north Queensland including the yellow bellied glider, sawfish, magnificent broodfrog, littoral rainforest, golden shouldered parrot and spectacled flying fox, just to name a few.

Participants will be able to connect and engage with leading scientists, experts, professionals, Traditional Owners and community advocates in threatened species conservation in Northern Queensland.

Topics on the agenda include:

• Planners and threatened species
• Recovery planning and coordination
• Onground actions and monitoring
• National, state and regional threatened species initiatives and prioritisation
• Volunteer mechanisms for habitat protection
• Challenges and Opportunities for Threatened Species Recovery: Presentations from Recovery Teams and Action Groups

While this event is targeted at recovery teams, action groups and Traditional Owners, all those involved in or interested in threatened species recovery in north Queensland are welcome.


  • Tickets $55 through Eventbrite
