Calling all environmental practitioners, ecologists, rangers, environmental managers, catchment managers from government, NRM organisations, environmental organisations and consultancies!
If you need to detect and monitor wildlife and wonder if eDNA could help you then please do join our webinars to learn more.
WEBINAR: introduction to innovative native & invasive wildlife detection using eDNA.
1.00pm AEST, Wednesday 6th May 2020, 60 minutes including Q&A - FREE
eDNA is a tool environmental professionals can benefit from now! Learn about what eDNA is, and how it is making detection easier and more cost effective with a range of common and threatened aquatic, semi aquatic and even terrestrial species. Learn how to apply and when it’s valuable to apply eDNA - like all methods it has a time and place depending on what is to be achieved.
WEBINAR: The Great Australian Platypus Search - the largest platypus survey ever undertaken thanks to eDNA
1.00pm AEST, Friday 8th May 2020, 60 minutes including Q&A - FREE
Hear from leading platypus expert, Josh Griffiths. Learn about this exciting project and opportunities for your organisation to be involved. In particular we think this will interest NRM organisations, environmental organisations and local government who want to learn more about platypuses in their backyard. It also presents opportunities for community engagement/citizen science.
WEBINAR: How environmental management teams can efficiently map biodiversity using eDNA
1.00pm AEST, Thursday 14th May 2020, 60 minutes including Q&A - FREE
Hear from one of Australia's leading conservation geneticists, Dr Andrew Weeks. Learn about different eDNA methods you can use and case studies including Aquablitz - a Melbourne Water project with over 1000 eDNA samples detecting more than 150 species. Learn about the power of eDNA and how it can make broad-scale biodiversity benchmarking and ongoing monitoring feasible.
Get your remaining questions answered when it comes to eDNA - as one of the early researchers of eDNA in Australia who has driven industry application for wildlife detection, Andrew is a great resource!
Chances are, you have heard whispers about environmental DNA (eDNA). All organisms leave traces of DNA in the environment which can now be extracted and identified. This means we no longer need to see, hear or catch something to know what is present in our waterways and surrounding environment. See how we deliver eDNA via wildlife detection services.
