    Through our participation in the Kōtahitanga Mō Te Taiao Alliance with the Nature Conservancy and many other organisations, we are now able to offer the opportunity to particpate in an excellent conservation leadership course.

    About the course

    Working in small groups, this practical course run by The Nature Conservancy will introduce the concepts, steps and structures of the Conservation Standards, using your own projects to demonstrate its application.

    Date and venue

    The training will be held in two parts: 

    1. Online sessions (half-day – morning) will be held on May 1,2, 8 and 9.   
    2. The in-person session will be held on 21-24 May, at the Beachside Nelson Conference & Events Centre, Tāhunanui, Nelson.  

    Cost information

     The full price of the training is NZ$500 (inclusive of GST). To make this accessible to as many conservation professionals as possible, we offer different rates: 

    Registration per person, 1-2 attendees /  per person, if 3 or more people attending
