Australasian Shorebird Conference 2022 – Registration open

August 20th, 2022

The 12th Australasian Shorebird Conference will take place online from 29-30 October 2022.  The Conference is online and registrations are now open here.

The theme for this Conference is “Global Strategies Local Actions” and through the Conference program we will look at what has been happening across the east Asian – Australasian Flyway since the 11th Australasian Shorebird Conference held in 2018.

We know of the many ongoing challenges that face shorebirds including loss of habitat, hunting, pollution and competition for food resources. Add to that the increasing threats from climate change and greater impacts from a growing human population in the Flyway, their world becomes more and more uncertain.

Strong efforts are being dedicated at the global and local level to understanding, raising awareness about, and addressing the problems facing shorebirds. You will see this reflected through the range of exciting sessions during the two days. Knowledge and action go hand in hand, and we will see the efforts that are being dedicated to achieving better outcomes for shorebirds.

Abstracts on presentations that support these themes are invited.  The deadline for abstract is 15 August and more information is here.

All keen “shorebirders” will find the program of interest however you are engaged with our amazing shorebirds. We encourage you to register and join the Conference to learn more about and be part of the wonderful world of shorebirds and those seeking to ensure their conservation.

The cost of registrations is at an all time low.
