Crazy & Ambitious Conference

The National Science Challenge for NZ’s Biological Heritage is calling its first meeting at Te Papa, Wellington.

Crazy & Ambitious 8-10 May 2017

A full 3-day programme with an inspiring line-up of internationally recognised speakers.

A piquant mixture of stretchy science, disruptive technologies, Māori and indigenous knowledge, business and industry, government and NGOs. We look forward to hearing your ideas (even if they do sound a bit crazy!), ambitions, progress, promises, experiences and future plans at this, our first national meeting.

Where are we at with Predator Free NZ by 2050? How are Māori  restoring customary use and protection of taonga species? Exactly who’s  restoring biodiversity and where? Who’s paying? What is the role of private  land in restoring connectivity across landscapes? Who’s leading the way? Are we  getting on top of biosecurity threats and what’s the role of primary  industries? How is the fencing of waterways going? What’s the latest report  card on freshwater health? How are ecological sanctuaries doing? Is climate change  starting to hurt our biological heritage?
