In the Fall, there is an additional conservation conference on Conservation Marketing. Conservation Marketing is the use of latest techniques and studies about how to motivate people, and change their behavior, in order to get the public to act in a more conservation-oriented manner. Among our strategies to do this, we suggest drawing tried and tested techniques used by the marketing industry, for example, to gain the attention of key target audiences.

This conference is aimed towards conservation practitioners and conservation scientists who want to discuss better ways to get their conservation message to the public, and to get the public to act on this message. This conference will give scientists practitioners the opportunity to discuss effective ways to “market” and publicize conservation problems and needs, and to better engage the public in conservation efforts.

Topics include:

  • Case studies of effective outreach efforts
  • Innovative conservation campaigns
  • Advice and case studies for engaging with specific user groups (hunters, fishermen, policy makers)
  • Using social media such as Twitter, podcasts, or YouTube to highlight a conservation issue and to engage the public
  • Interpreting conservation science to diverse audiences
