Don’t miss Australia’s 3rd Wildlife Tourism Conference in Geelong, Victoria from 29 September to 2 October 2015.
Wildlife and wild landscapes are two of the biggest drawcards for tourism in Australia, and interest in genuine and responsible wildlife experiences is expanding. From African villages and Indonesian national parks to using Aboriginal culture to connect children with nature, from public education in zoos to diving with sharks or involving tourists in citizen science, there is much to learn and much to discuss at this exciting event!
