Wildlife Tourism Australia 2018

Poster

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

The 2018 Wildlife Tourism Australia conference is a deep dive, balancing the needs of wildlife, tourists, operators and residents. This Planeta.com page is updated before, during and after the conference. We are also curating this Twitter moment. If you are a participant, please share thoughts, photos and videos. If you are fan or curious about wildlife tourism in Australia, please like and share the posts from Australia.

From Wildlife Tourism Australia: “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 brings 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.”
