Five Million Hectares published – a story of science-led expansion of Queensland’s national park estate

Paul Sattler OAM, former President of the Society, has published his professional memoirs, chronicling in particular the expansion of Queensland’s national park estate in the 1990s. The 219-page
information-packed work is recommended reading for any person interested in biodiversity conservation, ecosystem mapping and Queensland’s administration of the nature conservation portfolio generally. Published online by and only by the Society in March 2015. See our Members’ Collections page for details and a link to a downloadable pdf. Former Minister Pat Comben wrote a most complimentary review in The Courier-Mail on 2 May 2015.
