What is the Ornithological Council and why should you support it?
The Ornithological Council is a great resource for ornithologists. We help researchers navigate the permit maze, address animal welfare concerns, publish the peer-reviewed Guidelines to the Use of Wild Birds in Research. The Ornithological Council is the voice of scientific ornithology. Learn more here!
By Ornithological Council
Don't lose your research specimens for failure to comply with import requirements! A new automated system implemented by Customs and Border Protection is mandatory and it is a big, big challenge. Read this article to learn about this system and how to deal with this hurdle.
UPDATE 15 AUGUST 2016: SEE THE INFO SHEET PREPARED BY CBP FOR SMALL COMPANIES AND ORGANIZATIONS. DON'T FORGET THAT CUSTOMS AND BORDER PROTECTION WILL HOLD A WEBINAR FOR OUR COMMUNITY IN EARLY JANUARY 2017. NOTICES WILL BE POSTED HERE AND ON AVECOLS AND NHCOLL LISTSERVES.
Your ornithological societies need your support if they are to continue providing the services that help you pursue your research and your careers. They provide journals to publish your research, grants to help fund your research, travel awards to help you attend professional meetings. They support the Ornithological Council, OrnithologyExchange, and myriad activities for ornithologists.
So how do you renew your membership?
This year, things are changing.
New merged Society, New Look!
The AOU and COS are merging to form a new society to serve ornithologists and advance ornithology in the 21st Century. Along with our new name, American Ornithological Society (AOS), and our new brand, American Ornithology, we want a new image to reflect who we are and what we are about!
Can you design a new logo? We invite you to submit original artwork and concepts to the AOS, whether they are hand-drawn illustrations or well-polished graphics files.
