10th International Penguin Conference
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.
