2019 Annual yellow-eyed penguin Symposium
Saturday 3th August 2019
During the day there will be time for all groups who wish to have an opportunity to report on what they have done for yellow-eyed penguins / hoiho during the past year. Please indicate on the registration form if your group would like to report and who will be speaking on behalf of your group. We will try our best to accommodate all requests to present.
The morning session will focus on season reports for monitoring, research, habitat and survey work undertaken over the past year, from community groups in Otago, Stewart Island / Rakiura and Codfish Island / Whenua Hou, Banks Peninsula / Te Pataka o Rakaihautu and the Sub-antarctic Islands.
10th International Penguin Conference, Dunedin, New Zealand
Saturday 24th – Wednesday 28th August 2019
The International Penguin Conferences (IPC) are the primary gathering of the world’s leading scientists, research managers and policy makers working on penguin biology, ecology, health and behaviour to discuss ongoing research, identify current and emerging conservation issues and create action plans. It’s a unique opportunity to bring together disparate groups of people with a common interest in penguins; the connections they make have often proved most fruitful and have led to some exciting collaborations.
The 10th International Penguin Conference will be held in the St David Theatre Complex of the University of Otago and will begin with an icebreaker the evening before. The proposed key themes for this conference are (but are not limited to): Fisheries interactions; Climate Change; The role of indigenous people (perspectives from different cultures) and Diseases.
There are optional field trips offered and a conference dinner will be held on the last night.
