The Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation is holding consultations on the WA Biodiscovery Bill. Biodiscovery involves research into native plant and animal genetics. They would like to consult Aboriginal people about the legislation to make sure that the benefits of any research can be shared. The consultations will be during September and October, with the Kalgoorlie consultation taking place on the 11th of October.
For any enquiries about the workshops or the Bill, please contact the Biodiscovery Project Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone (08) 6277 3050.
