4th International Forum on the sub-Antarctic
29 – 30 July
The Tasmanian Government is proud to join with the New Zealand Department of Conservation to host the 4th International Forum on the sub-Antarctic in Hobart, gateway to the Southern Ocean and the east Antarctic. The Forum will be multidisciplinary, interactive and inclusive, encouraging discussion of the common challenges and pressures that face the sub-Antarctic. It will bring together all those passionate about the sub-Antarctic – scientists, tourism operators, fishers, land managers, heritage experts and policy makers – to share knowledge and experience, explore connections and develop partnerships for a collective future.
Within the overarching themes of policy, management and science, the forum will include sessions on climate, conservation, biosecurity, geoscience, tourism, fishing, heritage, connectivity and management challenges.
