Habitat Acquisition Trust is planning this year's forum and we'd like your suggestions

Every other year, Habitat Acquisition Trust hosts a Conservation Connections forum to promote collaboration across the conservation community. We are now planning this year's forum and we'd love to hear from you!

The Conservation Connection Forum will be held Thurs October 12th, 2017 at the beautiful Horticulture Centre of the Pacific. This year's theme is Conservation Planning on an Island, connecting habitat and people across political boundaries.
As we begin planning, we would love your feedback to help us make the forum as valuable as possible to our attendees and facilitate sharing of information and conservation collaboration. The goal is to connect people and places to work towards shared outcomes for conservation on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands. Your input is really appreciated to help shape this fantastic event!

The aim for the forum is to facilitate networking, brainstorming, and provide learning opportunities for all attendees.

* 1. What conservation themes are of greatest interest to you? (rank 1 as most important and 8 as least important)

* 2. Are there other conservation themes not yet mentioned you would like to suggest?

* 3. What type of activities do you find most valuable in facilitating learning and collaboration?

* 4. Are there are other learning activities not yet mentioned you would like to suggest?
