Melbourne Nature Network

An informal group of urban nature and biodiversity professionals in Melbourne (and beyond) who meet every couple of months to connect, discuss new projects and research, share learnings and support professional development.

The latest network activities can be found on our LinkedIn page.

Key themes are improving biodiversity, engaging the community, adapting to climate change, and respecting first nations perspectives.

Our vision is to “connect diverse professionals working with urban nature in Melbourne and beyond to improve biodiversity and engage the community”.

A summary of a survey of network members views on setting up the network can be found here.
