Living with Wellington's Wildlife:
The evidence is starting to support our hunch – Wellington is becoming increasingly nature rich. This change comes with great privilege, but also great responsibility. In this seminar we will talk about the change we are seeing in Wellington and what is driving it.

I will cover some of the science that tells us what this might mean for us as people, and how we could make it even better. We will finish the evening with some discussion on what this means for as all as Wellingtonians.

About Dr. Danielle Shanahan:
Dr Danielle Shanahan, Manager of Conservation and Research, Zealandia Danielle started her career in conservation management working on some of the world’s most threatened species in some of New Zealand’s most remote places. She then took up an opportunity with the Smithsonian Institute looking at ways to mitigate human-elephant conflicts in Myanmar, before moving to Brisbane for her PhD.

Since then Danielle has developed strategic offset and environmental policies for the Queensland Government, carried out award winning research on the economic and social benefits of ecosystems, and developed new approaches for integrating green spaces into urban environments. She has now been with Zealandia for just over two years, and has a particular interest in the connection between people, nature and health.
