2019 NZ Bird Conference – Wellington

Saturday 1st – Monday 3rd June 2019 – Brentwood Hotel, Kilbirnie, Wellington

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 hearing from 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.

The conference will comprise two days of scientific presentations and five field trip options. The Annual General Meeting will be held on Saturday afternoon, 1st June.
