Anthropology and Conservation Virtual Conference
Date: October 25th - 29th
We are very pleased to announce a major interdisciplinary conference on Anthropology and Conservation. The aim of the conference is simple: it is increasingly recognised that conservation can only be properly achieved with Indigenous Peoples, in full recognition of their rights. It is therefore urgent that we develop cross-disciplinary understanding not just of conservation, but also of the way that conservation and people go together. The conference will be held virtually. The conference was originally proposed by the University of East Anglia’s School of International Development, and we are pleased to welcome as co-organisers alongside UEA: Forest Peoples Programme, the Linnean Society, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the University of Kent’s School of Anthropology and Conservation, the Anthropology and Environment Society (a section of the AAA), Botanic Garden Conservation International, the Society of Ethnobiology and Cambridge Conservation Initiative.
National Bat Conference
Date: October 29th - 31st
Join us on Zoom on 29-31 October 2021 for our National Bat Conference and to help us celebrate #30YearsBats as we celebrate BCT's 30th anniversary this year. We are delighted to announce that our Keynote speaker this year will be Professor Tigga Kingston of Texas Tech University who will open the conference on Friday afternoon.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation and in response to feedback from past participants, we will be holding the National Bat Conference 2021 online again this year. We hope this will enable as many people as possible to attend safely. The National Bat Conference is the biggest event in the bat calendar - a weekend of exciting talks, workshops and networking. The conference is an opportunity to learn about the new discoveries in the world of bat conservation, catch up with old friends and meet new ones.
Australia and New Zealand Environmental DNA Conference
Date: March 21st - 23rd
Abstract Submission Deadline: September 30th
We are excited to announce a launch of the inaugural Environmental DNA conference and invite you to join us in Hobart, Tasmania on 21 – 23 March 2022 for this landmark meeting. The Conference will be delivered in a hybrid format, virtually and face-to-face.
Environmental DNA (eDNA) analysis uses the power of DNA sequences to offer a rapid, universal and cost-effective way to measure biodiversity, detect pests, and much more. Not only is eDNA science a fast-moving and innovative field, but increasingly, government agencies and industry are adopting it to support environmental management.
Without a doubt, eDNA is changing the face of biological measurement, and now is a pivotal time to engage deeply with the community. Whether you are a practitioner, end-user of environmental information, manager, or policymaker, we hope you will join us to discuss the latest innovations, identify best practice, meet with collaborators, and build networks with historical Hobart and beautiful Kunanyi (Mt Wellington) as a backdrop.
