Meeting Description: 24TH SWAN CONFERENCE, 16-18 Nov 2016, Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. Swan experts and enthusiasts will gather in British Columbia's beautiful Vancouver Island to discuss the latest in swan research, conservation, management and protection at a joint conference of The Trumpeter Swan Society and the Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society. Special attention will also be given to the status, management, and conservation of Trumpeter Swans in the Pacific Flyway and potential conflicts between swans and agriculture during winter. Declining winter habitat is becoming a critical issue for Pacific Flyway Trumpeter Swans. Trumpeter Swan issues and opportunities across North America will be presented. The conference will feature three days of contributed scientific papers, posters and workshops, a banquet and silent auction, and a one day field trip. Papers will cover all aspects of swan ecology. A panel discussion Wednesday evening will offer insights into winter habitat issues, including agricultural feeding which is so important to wintering swans in the Pacific Northwest. Conference proceedings are anticipated to be published. The conference will be held in Duncan, British Columbia at the Aboriginal Quw'utsun' Cultural Centre honoring the ancient roots of the Coast Salish in the valley. World famous wildlife artist, Robert Bateman, will be the Friday night Gala's keynote speaker. Stay for the WildWings Festival as Trumpeter Swans and other birds return for winter. The staff and boards of The Trumpeter Swan Society and Somenos Marsh look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Vancouver Island!
