Have your say - Open Policy Consultations
The ESA encourages its members to engage with policy development and consultation processes, to help promote the application of ecological principles and science in decision-making and natural resource management processes.
This page will list details of open policy consultations that may be of interest to ESA members. If you want to make a submission to any of the consultations but aren't sure how to go about this, please contact the VP (Public Policy and Outreach) Dr Bek Christensen. You can also view past submissions prepared by the ESA's Policy WG.
