Dr Gary Tabor
Gary Tabor has a mission to connect and protect natural habitats across the world's lands, rivers and oceans, which he sees as essential to the survival of nature in the 21st century.
Biolinks Alliance is thrilled to be hosting Gary’s visit, sharing his deep experience of protecting and re-connecting habitat over thousands of kilometres.
With 150 native species threatened with extinction in central Victoria we need new ways to tackle the problem.
He has much to offer us as we pursue our ambitious vision to re-connect habitat across central Victoria
Gary will speak about the priorities and opportunities for 21st Century conservation practice.
Come and be inspired and hear how we all need to be, and can be, part of the solution in central Victoria.
Join us afterwards for private drinks and canapes at 7pm with Gary, Biolinks Chair Paul Foreman and our Board at Prunella, 57 Mollison St, Kyneton (opposite the IGA).
Gary is a co-founder of the remarkable and inspiring Yellowstone to Yukon Initiative. Y2Y is connecting and protect habitat across more than 3000 km from Yellowstone National Park in the US to the Yukon Territory in Canada.
Trained as a wildlife veterinarian and conservation biologist, Gary has over 30 years' experience working for large scale conservation internationally with experience in Africa, the US and Australia.
He is has recently established the Centre for Large Landscape Conservation and is the chair of the newly created World Commission on Protected Areas' Connectivity Conservation Working Group.
Connecting and Protecting habitat from Yellowstone to Yukon so people and nature can thrive.
The Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative is a trans-border non-profit organisation that connects and protects the landscape, some 2,000 miles (3,200km) of it, to support the health of people, wildlife and nature. It is no simple task, but together with their supporters and over 125 partners they are making it happen.
Since large landscape conservation involves great geographical scales and touches many lives, it requires a collaborative effort—not something one organization can fully shoulder alone.
The Centre for Large Landscape Conservation is a “hub” for large landscape conservation, connecting people, organizations and resources to foster powerful solutions that respect diverse stakeholders.
