The theme of this year's conference is 'Achieving a paradigm shift for conservation', which reflects the need to go beyond protecting nature, to actually restoring it.

We're delighted to welcome Minister of Conservation and Forest & Bird Distinguished Life Member Hon. Eugenie Sage as our keynote speaker for the Conference. We'll also be featuring exciting and challenging presentations from thought leaders on fresh water, climate change, our oceans, nature on land, and Te Ao Māori conservation innovations.
