Speaker: Kimberly Michael: 2022 LEF grant recipient, MSc. Candidate Flinders University

Topic: Determining habitat suitability for Pygmy Bluetongue lizards (Tiliqua adelaidensis) for future translocations

Anthropogenic actions have caused irreversible damage to biodiversity globally and led to the current conservation crisis, the sixth mass extinction. For some species, such as the endangered pygmy bluetongue, translocation is the only solution to mitigate against the threats of habitat loss and climate change. Kim will discuss findings of habitat suitability for the pygmy bluetongue and their significance to identifying potential translocation sites in Adelaide.
