Trails and Conservation – Opportunities and Challenges
Globally trails play a significant role in providing access to nature in protected areas. How are protected areas and biodiversity impacted by trail development? How is wildlife affected or disturbed, or does it adjust and also make use of trails? Do trails result in more awareness of conservation priorities and needs? These and other questions will be the topic of our dialogue.
