History of Biennial Fraser Island Conferences

Fraser Island is a World Heritage site that warrants study because of its Outstanding Universal Value and its fragility.  It is a natural laboratory for a wide range of environmental studies.  The results of those studies undertaken need to be communicated to the public because better appreciation fosters better care and management.  That has remained FIDO’s objective in continuing to organise these conferences.
