AgForce Reef Regulations Roadshow

Date: Wednesday, 11 September, 2019
Venue:
Alpha, Capella, Moura, Gracemere, Queensland

AgForce invites you to join guest speaker, Professor Peter Ridd and AgForce Senior Policy Officer, Dr Greg Leach for these informative sessions highlighting the need for reliable evidence to guide effective regulation.

Professor Ridd has over 30 years’ experience advising on the reef.

He was dismissed by James Cook University in 2018 following his remarks that the Great Barrier Reef science institutions could not be trusted due to their “inadequate quality assurance systems”.

Professor Ridd’s presentation will include previously unseen slides, that he was prevented from sharing while employed by James Cook University.

Dr Leach will address AgForce’s continued efforts to stand up for rural and regional Queensland in relation to the profound and devastating impact existing and proposed regulations will have on members and landholders. AgForce has long called for balance in the science that underpins vegetation and landscape management and supports Peter’s call for improved quality assurance.
