Purpose


The purpose of the conference is to celebrate 20 years of integrated conservation management by the New Zealand Department of Conservation and to chart options for the future.


Goals


The goals of the conference are to bring together practitioners, scientists, policy-makers and conservation advocates from New Zealand and elsewhere to:



  • consider future challenges for conservation agencies and how existing models might be strengthened or adapted to meet them;
  • review and evaluate the achievements of the past 20 years of conservation management in New Zealand; and
  • assess the ways in which conservation agencies might best achieve their goals for conservation outcomes in 2050 and beyond.
