How Fungi contribute to Conservation with Patrick Leonard
16 October @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm$5
We value our environment for its diversity, for its contribution to the world we live in, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. Our National Parks are rich and diverse places: the plants, animals, insects, fungi and other organisms form a complex and interconnected web.
Fungi provide one of the key forms of interconnection in the natural world. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has recently placed some Australian fungi on its red list of rare and threatened species. Some of these occur in Noosa’s National Parks.
We tend to think that National Parks offer protection but there are threats within our parks.
Patrick Leonard will outline the some of the issues surrounding species conservation, how some species can be indicators of the health of our environment and how members of the Noosa Parks Association might contribute to monitoring our environment.
