The workshop “Using Wildlife for Tourism: Opportunities, Threats, Responsibilities” has an exciting and varied program lined up for next week, with talks in the morning from tour operators, academics and others, and what should prove some very active discussion groups each afternoon
Where: Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, Gold Coast
When: Wed-Friday 16-18 May 2012
We’ll be discussing the economics of wildlife tourism, quality interpretation, how tourism can contribute to wildlife conservation, and more – and determined it will not just be a talkfest but have some genuine follow-through actions such as policy-formulation, letters to government, new projects and partnerships and dissemination of useful information for small tourism businesses, conservation managers and others.
Registration has now officially closed, but it may still be possible to accept a few extra if you’re quick!
