This free public event by Professor Hans Lambers will give people an understanding of some of the values of WA’s world renowned natural beauty that we often take for granted.

The event is also the chance to welcome Hans Lambers, Professor of Plant Biology at the University of Western Australia, as our new Patron.

We are thrilled to have Professor Lambers represent our association. His wealth of knowledge on Australian ecology aligns with our aim for the protection of the remarkable corridor of urban bushland connecting the Beeliar Wetlands with the Indian Ocean, providing habitat for native flora and fauna and a valuable community resource.

Professor Lambers was the former Secretary General of the Federation of European Societies of Plant Biology and Fellow of the Netherlands Academy of Arts and Science, Honorary Professor at China Agricultural University, Beijing and past President of the Australian Society of Plant Scientists.

He has published more than 350 scientific articles and is the lead author of Plant Physiological Ecology, which has been translated in Chinese and Persian. He is an ISI-listed Highly-Cited author.

In 2006, he started the Kwongan Foundation for the Conservation of Australian Native Biodiversity and has been pursuing having the amazing Kwongan area in Western Australia listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
