Objectives of The Conservation Symposium

  • facilitate the integration of science and real-world practical experience into broader conservation-related policy and practice
  • increase science-policy capacity for evidence-based and informed decision making within the conservation sector, with a particular focus on existing conservation practitioners, new entrants to the wildlife economy, and students
  • ensure that the research agenda is guided by and responsive to the needs of conservation, in terms of both emerging and ongoing challenging conservation issues
  • develop and share a cohesive approach to conservation and sustainable use
  • maximise the reach of the content by providing an online resource to archive and share presentations, discussions, and other relevant content for those that cannot attend in person
  • ensure that all forms of knowledge (science, indigenous, and local knowledge) are considered for decision-making in conservation
  • provide a platform for early-career conservation practitioners, researchers, and decision-makers in Africa to present and discuss issues related to conservation
  • provide for Continuing Professional Development of practitioners and scientists
