Wild Places Conference

Auckland, 10-11 August 2016

Wild Places

Wild Places define New Zealand. They evoke powerful emotions that connect us to these islands with their outstanding scenery and unique biota. They include land, lakes and rivers, and the sea. They extend over conservation, Māori and private land. Wild Places make this country special for those who live here and those who visit. Our economic welfare and country brand depends on Wild Places.

EDS’s 2016 conference will explore New Zealand’s Wild Places and assess both emerging threats and exciting new opportunities. It will draw on insights from international and local experience, case studies and workshops. It will look creatively at the development of powerful new synergies between conservation and tourism and will explore novel management and funding initiatives.

Registration will be open shortly at www.edsconference.com.
