2021 Yellow-eyed Penguin Symposium

The Annual Yellow-eyed Penguin Symposium is on again for 2021. Please note the venue is the same as last year.

Date: Saturday 7th August 2021

Time: 9am – 4pm

Venue: Archway 2 Lecture Theatre

Archway Building on the corner of Union Street East and Leith Walk (look for the YEPT flags along the way!)

University of Otago, Dunedin (map can be found here).


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.

Please note, we have requested that presenters indicate how their talk aligns to one or more actions within Te Mahere Rima Tau. The intention of this request is to show the breadth of the community commitment to the conservation of this species.

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.

The afternoon session will allow for longer presentations on relevant issues as required.

Morning tea and lunch will be provided as in previous years. Registration is staying at $35 per person and the symposium price is budgeted to cover costs only – there is no intention to make a profit.
