8th Fire Management Symposium
(NMMU) Saasveld and the Southern African Institute of Forestry (SAIF) invite you to a Fire Management symposium. A reminder that you have to register before the 26th October 2012.
This event marks the 8th Fire Management symposium to be hosted by (NMMU) Saasveld and SAIF. One of the aims of this symposium is to share and transfer technical knowledge to fire managers. In the light of the catastrophic veld fires that destroy thousands of hectares in South Africa yearly, this is a worthy occasion. During this event fire managers and authorities from different disciplines and different land uses (Nature Conservation, Agriculture, Forestry, Local authorities, etc.), will come together to network and exchange ideas. This is a unique opportunity not to be missed. The key speaker at this year's event is Dr Kevin Tolhurst from the University of Melbourn Australia. He has a proven history as a fire specialists and act as advisor to national and international fire management organisations. He is both a fire management expert and a fire ecologist.
