As market conditions change, new ideas and innovations are needed.

This panel discussion will review attitudes of the traditional equity and project finance markets, outline how companies are reacting to these challenges and evaluate some of the new pools of alternative financing options available.

Questions will be addressed by a discussion panel with special guests:

  • Dr Mark Bennett – CEO of Sirius Resources

Anyone interested in eating fresh, local and sustainable produce, as well as creative, forward-thinking cooks looking for inspiration will not want to miss this event where you will get to meet chef Sophie Zalokar and hear her talk about her passion for fresh seasonal produce grown in the stunning Southern Forest region.

You may not have heard much about the Southern Forests, but you’ve probably been eating fresh food grown in this region your whole life. Well-known Western Australian chef Sophie Zalokar (from the popular Foragers Field Kitchen & Cooking School in Pemberton) has brought together 40 producers and gatherers from the land, freshwater and sea, and created Food of the Southern Forests which is filled with recipes that show her love of authentic and exciting regional food, alongside the stories of the down-to-earth people who grow it.

Zalokar sources seasonal produce from this diverse and abundant region to offer surprising creations. Kale and ricotta wraps are served beside a wattle seed za’atar. Mulled blueberries join elderflower fritters and sweet labna. Wild mushrooms are foraged. Finger limes garnish marron and avocado. Salted caramel butter is spread on a macadamia and dried pear loaf.

About Free The Bears Fund
Free the bears is a non-profit organisation dedicated to protecting, preserving and enriching the lives of bears as well as creating positive change and employment within the local communities of the countries we work in. The fund was founded by Mary Hutton in 1995, with the office based in Perth. We are currently working in Cambodia, India, Laos and Vietnam.

We have great challenges ahead as we strive to protect wild bears from the many threats around them. Each country faces a unique set of issues to overcome, including bear bile farming, poaching and the restaurant trade. We employ a range of strategies including environmental education, conservation research and strengthened law enforcement to ensure that we achieve our mission to protect, preserve and enrich the lives of bears throughout the world. Every cent donated to Free the Bears is sent directly to our overseas projects as part of our 100% guarantee.
