Island Arks Symposium V


Island Arks Symposium V will be held in Fiji during October 23-27th 2017.

The Island Arks Symposium is a long standing, high level meeting for islanders, island managers, conservation ecologists and island eco-tourism operators. The Symposium provides an invaluable forum for knowledge sharing, and as a platform for developing collaborations and partnerships amongst island people. Now in its 5th iteration, Island Arks V promises to be a wonderful opportunity for those involved in, or with an interest in island management within the Pacific region and elsewhere.
