Topics will include:

- Understanding whale migrations and their significance for marine conservation;
- Promoting sustainable whale and dolphin tourism for tourists and local communities;
- Exploring our cultural and artistic connections with migrating whales;
- Maximising the power of cetaceans to inspire positive human behaviour change to protect our oceans.
- Delegates will hear from speakers, and discuss and share evidence, to better understand how we - can improve and ensure the protection of cetaceans in Australia and worldwide. In addition, delegates will participate in themed workshops and share ideas and best practice on the work already underway to protect cetaceans.

Following the conference, the Whale Heritage Site Summit will showcase destinations, businesses, charities, events, and communities leading the way in marine conservation, community engagement, and sustainable development. Awards will be given to world-leading initiatives in front of representatives from tourist destinations, international institutions and the private sector, along with global experts in tourism, sustainability, the arts, marine conservation, scientific research and commercial whale watching. Delegates will then discuss and explore opportunities for the development of new sites, and networks of sites, worldwide.
