Conservation in a changing world

The BioHeritage Challenge is sponsoring a bioethics panel Killing for Conservation at the 5th Oceania Congress for Conservation Biology, plus a number of researchers involved in Challenge projects are presenting.

Killing for Conservation — ask questions, join the debate and have your say

This is a free public session in Wellington, hosted by Kim Hill at Te Papa’s Amokura Room at 5.30pm on Wednesday 4 July.

There are many issues to tackle in the quest for a predator free New Zealand. Often overlooked are the ethical questions involved in predator control. From gene editing to what actually constitutes an invasive species, everything is up for debate. Come along to meet leading conservation scientists working on these issues.

The congress brings together conservation professionals to address challenges and present new findings, initiatives, methods, tools and opportunities in conservation science and practice. Scientists, students, managers, decision-makers, writers, and other conservation professionals are invited to participate in this event.
