The Island Arks Symposium is an exciting opportunity to share the knowledge and practice of our Island stewards.

An invaluable forum for developing collaborations and partnerships for those involved in, or with an interest in Island management within the Pacific Region and elsewhere.

Previously held on Daydream Island, Tasmania, Norfolk Island, Fiji, Rottnest Island and Philip Island, this year the symposium will be held on Kangaroo Island.

Join practitioners, land managers, policy makers, scientists, community groups and traditional custodians as they explore the challenges, pathways and solutions to island sustainability.
