Brentwood Hotel, Kilbirnie, Wellington
between 1 to 3 June 2019 (Queens Birthday Weekend)
The Conference Programme & Abstracts are now available!
For online registration and details go here.
This 80th celebratory conference aims to continue the fine work of previous events in making this the premier New Zealand conference for the communication of new research findings on New Zealand birds and for providing opportunities for discussion and networking for professional ornithologists, students and others who are interested in birds and their habitats.
We look forward to presenting several keynote lectures of a diversity of topics, including Wellington birds, Auckland Islands, old bones and ancient DNA, genetics and taxonomy, physiology and reproduction, and seabirds. We hope that a range of shorter talks will describe studies on a wide range of topics and in doing so we look forward to bringing together researchers and all who are interested to share their knowledge and findings to make this conference a dynamic, informative and memorable event.
There are limited space so register now!
