Biodiversity in the City : issue 1
21 Albury biodiversity in the parklands Paul Scannell Paul is Curator and Natural Areas Coordinator at Albury Botanic Gardens. Paul started gardening at the age of nine for pocket money and loved going down to the local creek to hunt for lizards and snakes. Paul has worked in the Albury Botanic Gardens and Albury's bushland for the past twenty years and is passionate about the Botanic Gardens, nature, the bush and all the treasures it holds and educating children about the environment. The Murray Darling's most stunning biodiversity photographs. Biodiversity is a fundamental part of Australia's natural wealth. In the Murray, biodiversity provides the infrastructure that underpins two key industries: agriculture and tourism. We rely on a healthy environment to provide both a standard of living and a quality of life. To celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature, photographers from across the region will be selected to display their most stunning photographs in parts of the city. Behind each image will be the stories behind the shots on topics such as wildlife, plant life, how-to photo tips, and inspirational travel stories. The Albury Botanic Gardens will form the backdrop for a series of displays and demonstrations that describe and showcase some of the region's fabulous biodiversity that can be found in parklands around Albury and beyond. Rare and threatened species will be highlighted and the pressures humans place on biodiversity will be emphasised.
