2018 Conference
October 28-31, 2018 Wildlife tourism values and challenges: balancing the needs of wildlife, tourists, operators and residents (Tasmania)

Too often we consider the needs of tourists or tour operators only, and when needs of the animals themselves or the needs of local human residents are considered, there is much emotional opinion but too little evidence. WTA is bringing together delegates and presenters from varied backgrounds to discuss the issues, the pros and the cons of different approaches to tourism, where it can have positive and negative impact on individual animals (welfare), populations of animals (conservation, education), local residents (economic boost, other advantages, nuisance value) and how to best fit this in with what tourists want (or adjust accordingly) and what tourist operators need in order to keep operating.
