Wetland Education and Training Workshop


Wetland Education and Training Workshop

‘Habitat requirements and conservation management of protected frogs in Australia'

Thursday and Friday, 7–8 August 2014


Australian frogs are under enormous pressure due to anthropomorphic activities resulting in wetland loss or modification, introduced diseases and increased predation. Commitments to ecologically sustainable development and legislation require a serious rethink of how we manage wetlands and frog habitats. Many urban, peri-urban and rural environments have suffered a decline in frog habitat, extent or quality and, as a consequence, planning for frog conservation can be a key consideration in land management. Frog habitats are often constructed as offsets for development or highly managed wetlands in urban/rural environments. Building and managing successful wetlands for frogs requires understanding of frog biology and their habitat requirements. Unless these are taken into account many Australian frog species will continue to decline, resulting in overall loss of biodiversity.

Department of Environment & Primary Industries 2015 Science Graduate Program

A total of 18 positions are available for the 2015 Science Graduate Program

-     12 of which are based in Regional Services.

See below for the description of each position, roles are indicative and changes may occur.

About Regional Services Division

Regional Services is DEPI's "presence" for its many programs in regional Victoria. The Regional Services teams work in each of the six DEPI regions. We value, depend on, and benefit from good relationships with Victorian communities, our stakeholders and partners. We work together across Regional Services and with DEPI's corporate and policy divisions to provide integrated and responsive delivery of DEPI services.

We are focused on recruiting graduates with a passion to work and live in regional Victoria.

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops

Who Will Benefit?

We teach writing from a broad perspective that encompasses a wide range of science backgrounds including both industry and academic research-based projects. We teach how to design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.

The Standard 2 Day Workshop

The writing workshops are usually presented as The Standard 2 Day Workshop. The modules cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, and analysing section and whole report structure. We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.

Australian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium

Australian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium - Traumatic Cardiac Arrest

The Australian Resuscitation Outcomes Consortium is pleased to be convening a seminar on ‘Traumatic Cardiac Arrest' on the evening of Monday 4th August 2014, at the Alfred Centre. We are fortunate to be able to take advantage of Associate Professor James Manning, Director of the Resuscitation Research Laboratory at the University of North Carolina, visiting Melbourne. We look forward to hearing about his work in selective aortic arch perfusion (SAAP) in traumatic cardiac arrest. In addition, we will hear about what is happening in traumatic cardiac arrest management in Victoria.

We look forward to you joining us for this interesting seminar – please see the attached flyer and don’t forget to register.
