Will European bees be relocated into Australia’s national parks after the bushfires? Much natural habitat was lost in the recent bushfires, which has led to commercial bees losing their source of food. Beekeepers are pushing for access to move commercial hives in to national parks and other unburnt public land. Associate Professor Patrick O’Connor recently wrote for […]

Over summer, a group of climate action-orientated year 8 to 12  students participated in a writing workshop held at the University of Adelaide. The school-aged students attended the University to learn about the research our Environment Institute members are undertaking. Students entered the competition answering “In 50 words or less, what your best solution to climate […]

Native insects have seen a dramatic loss in numbers during the recent Australian bushfires. In an article featured in the The Conversation, the University of Adelaide’s Associate Professor Patrick O’Connor, talks about the considerable losses sustained by honeybee industry in the recent fires. This has led to commercial beekeepers pushing for access to move commercial […]

Our members will converge on this event to share their research on the recent catastrophic, Australian bushfires. As the world looked on, Australia lost more than 11 million hectares, 30 lives, thousands of properties and wildlife destroyed. The smoke is clearing, the natural question is: what can, and should, we do differently to strategically manage […]

The Conversation features lessons learnt by Boone Law as he mapped bushfire impacted areas on Kangaroo Island. By PhD candidate Wallace Boone Law with contributions from Megan M. Lewis. My recent experience suggests there is a considerable knowledge gap between ‘Big Satellite Data’ and ‘those who need it’. Megan and I share the concern that neither the general public […]

Comments Off on PUBLIC SEMINAR: Impact of our changing weather on wildfire behaviour and natural environments

As urbanisation and digital access increases, children are growing up without the understanding and experience of what nature is. Engagement with nature has multiple reported physical, mental and social benefits, as well as improves conservation behaviour. Engagement with nature may therefore be an effective way to target the current decline in child wellbeing and academic […]
