A new meeting has been added to the =1']Ornithology Meetings database.


Meeting Description:

Registration is Now Open for the IV Neotropical Raptor Conference and II Symposium on Neotropical Owls in Costa Rica


The Neotropical Raptor Network, The Peregrine Fund, Fundacion Rapaces de Costa Rica, and Grupo de Especialistas de Buhos Neotropicales will host the conference and owl symposium in La Fortuna, Costa Rica from 10-13 October 2016.


Biologists, students, falconers, educators, and other conservationists will come together to share their latest research results, successes and challenges. The conference will also act as a meeting point to foster discussion and collaboration on solutions to both present and future conservation issues such as habitat destruction, electrocution, human persecution of raptors and climate change.


In addition to 3 days of scientific oral and poster sessions, social events and a full day of Raptor Skills Courses there will be time to enjoy the town of La Fortuna de San Carlos and the fantastic birding in the forests on the slopes of Mt. Arenal. One of the most-visited areas of the country, La Fortuna is surrounded by national parks, hot-springs, streams, waterfalls and of course, the now dormant Arenal volcano, making it an excellent location for birding, hiking, zip-lining, rafting, and other outdoor activities. The conference hotel is home to gorgeous tree-top walkways that provide breath-taking views and spectacular birding opportunities.


Registration is now open! Visit http://nrn.peregrinefund.org for conference details and to register online today.


The deadline to submit an abstract is 10 July 2016.
