  • Which countries have associations similar to Wildlife Tourism Australia, and what are their roles?
  • What is new in wildlife tourism in our our nearest neighbours (New Zealand, New Guinea, Southeast Asia, Antarctica, and could there be more cross-promotion of wildlife travel between our countries, and promotion of our general regin to the rest of the world?

Thursday: contributions of tourism to conservation

  • What is already working well, both in Australia and elsewhere?
  • What is the potential for increased contribution by wildlife tourism and the tourism industry in general to conservation of wildlife and habitats (which can include monetary contributions, habitat restoration, public education, conservation breeding, citizen science etc.)

Friday: the value of wildlife tourism to local economies

  • What do we already know of the contributions of wildlife tourism to local and regional economies?
  • What kinds of wildlife tourism can encourage tourists to visit less-traveled regions, spend an extra night , or make repeat visits?
