Luke McMillan, Perth NRM’s Environment Manager, recently presented on ‘Ecological connectivity and resilience in the Swan NRM Region’ at the Planting, Properties and Conservation Seminar hosted by the EMRC which was held at the Blue Sky Festival.
Habitat fragmentation and developing habitat stepping stones were highlighted in the presentation as well as discussions around the priority areas in our region.
“Our goal is for our natural landscapes and native ecosystems to be healthy, sustainable, and valued by the community. The concept of building ecological resilience is central to our approach” says Luke.
The Blue Sky Festival helps community to understand how we can ensure a positive future for generations to come, by living responsibly and with care in our local community and natural environment.
The festival was a local, non-commercial and minimal waste event, based on themes of energy, water, waste, transport, biodiversity, the built environment, local food, the next generation and fire mitigation. The day included a number of workshops and talks central to these themes.
