They came from all over the world with a shared purpose: to find the disappeared, save the doomed and make friends for conservation.

The Conservation Lab is an annual gathering of the biggest names in a diverse range of sectors including travel, conservation, tech, government, community and the private sector. This impressive collection of innovators, inventors and well-meaning philanthropists spent two days together earlier this year exploring new ideas and fiercely challenging current practices to push forward progressive conservation efforts.

See how this year’s Conservation Lab ignited innovation through collaboration, proving that when we work together we can move the agenda forward – and Fight Our Way Back

The dates for next year have now been announced as 11 – 13 May 2018. If you’re interested in attending or collaborating, please contact Paul Nel at for more information.
