ANET2018 | Connecting Nature, Connecting People

The Australasian Network for Ecology and Transportation (ANET) together with the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand are excited to announce their next conference will be held from 30 April to 2 May 2018 at the RACV Goldfields Resort in Creswick, Victoria.

The theme for the conference is Connecting Nature, Connecting People, and we are busy creating a program that will be of immense value to delegates from government, industry, research and community groups from around Australia. The program will include the latest findings in road ecology research from around the world, best practise in government and industry, as well as ample opportunity for networking and creating collaborations.

At just one hour from Melbourne, the regional venue is easily accessible by train or car, and we will be running a number of shuttles from downtown Melbourne and the Melbourne International Airport to Creswick. The well-equipped facility and on-site accommodation is nestled in natural bushland and is perfectly located to inspect VicRoads projects along the Calder Freeway and Western Highway.
