Join Paul Sattler for a fascinating mix of Caloundra and family history, beekeeping and biodiversity, as he presents his new book, Five Million Hectares: A Conservation Memoir: 1972–2008.

Boasting a pauper, a prince and a squatter in his family tree, Paul also relates stories from his time growing up in the honey business on the outskirts of Caloundra.

As one of Australia's leading thinkers on national conservation strategy, Paul will talk about his work from the 1970s to 2000, overseeing the doubling of Queensland’s national park estate with Environment Minister Pat Comben.

In recognition for his services to biodiversity conservation, Paul has been awarded the Order of Australia, receiving his ‘gong’ at the same ceremony as former Caloundra City Mayor Des Dwyer, whose son, Cr Tim Dwyer, will introduce the talk.
