About the Event
“The Channel Islands are home to plants and animals found nowhere else in the world. They are also the site of globally significant conservation success stories. Hear from 10 conservation experts who have stepped in across the archipelago to do the near-impossible work of removing the nonnative, invasive species that threaten these unique ecosystems. Learn about the diverse habitat that has regrown, the rare birds that have recolonized, and the recovery of endangered plants and foxes. And find out how you can help continue this work until the longevity and resilience of the islands’ ecosystems are secured.”
About the Conservation Symposium
“The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s annual Conservation Symposium brings conservation heroes and engaging experts together with students, land managers, conservation practitioners, and educators. Together, we examine issues from various angles and then follow with a panel discussion to illuminate how we can all contribute and what we can do even better moving forward. Our participants leave with the knowledge and energy to further the mission of conserving native plants and habitats for the health and well-being of people and our planet.”
