Exploring the Science, Practice and Value of Nature Conservation

Welcome to the Conservation Symposium Video Archive. Over the many years that the symposium has been running, we have been very fortunate to have had presented at our symposium an extremely diverse and varied array of subjects, the one unifying theme being that they are all ‘Conservation’ related. Presentations have varied from many diverse topics including environmental law and international agreements, data management, social science, community-based research, social ecology, species monitoring and introductions, new technologies, poaching and wildlife trade, just to name a few. In an effort to make these contributions available to a wider audience who were unable to attend the Symposium itself, we started creating videos of the presentations (dating back to 2012) to be published onto our YouTube Channel. This initiative has now seen over 650 presentations being made available online, with more being added all the time. The shear number and diversity of talks has started to make this site a bit unwieldy however, so we have started this archive to introduce a degree of structure and searchability.

Whilst we have endeavored to make this site as searchable as possible, if you are looking for a specific theme or topic, we suggest first having a look through the programs provided. If you see a talk that you would like to find out more about, start searching for the lead author in the search bar and you should be able to find it.

Two disclaimers:

  1. The work presented here has been done so with the express permission of the author’s themselves, and represents their work
  2. Whilst we tried to capture as many talks as possible, a lack of permission and, in some cases, technical glitches did see some talks not being recorded or posted

A request if we may: should you find any errors, please could you let us know at data@kznwildlife.com.

Happy browsing!
