Nature Foundation SA is very excited to be hosting this national conference, to be held in Adelaide for the first time. 

The national Australian Land Conservation Alliance Conference (PLC19) builds on the growing momentum for private land conservation across Australia, so evident from the last four conferences.  PLC19 asks presenters and delegates alike the question of how will we Rise to the Challenge – smarter, faster, bigger, together – and make a significant, positive and enduring difference to nature?  This urgent and compelling question is posed to the private land conservation sector, to industry and business, governments, future generations, society, education and research.

We are currently finalising an exciting and thought-provoking program addressing the 2019 theme 'Rising to the Challenge'. Presentations will focus on work that is transforming our sector and delegates will leave energised and informed to work towards solving conservation’s most pressing problems.


How do we make the profound and positive changes to propel us further down the path toward large scale, meaningful outcomes? Please share your knowledge, perspectives, research or experience by submitting an abstract to PLC19!
