Wildlife Tourism Conference 2024

Wild Tails: the importance of quality story-telling and other interpretation in wildlife tourism

Interpretation is one of the most important aspects of wildlife tourism.

If done well it increases the visitor’s enjoyment of the experience, including both entertainment value and a sense of satisfaction in expanding and deepening their knowledge of the place they are visiting.

It can have longer-lasting effects by encoring them to see other experiences in nature and appreciate the beauty and fascination of wildlife fauna and flora generally.

It can give important messages about how they should and shouldn’t approach, view and interact with wildlife on the tour and elsewhere.

It can also enlighten visitors about conservation issues generally and what they can do to help, both on tour and elsewhere.

Site of conference: TBA but somewhere in Northern New South Wales

Date of conference: Early November 2024.
