The Stewardship Centre for BC and Bird Studies Canada, in collaboration with the 27th International Ornithological Congress (IOCongress 2018), the Vancouver International Bird Festival (VIBF 2018), and partners, is a forum and showcase of innovative practices championed in our province and beyond.
Join us August 24th for a full day of conversations and actions assisting birds and wildlife. From 8:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the Roundtable will be devoted to learning and sharing ideas for action on pressing issues in ecological stewardship. Panel presentations, World Café style discussions, storytelling, and networking will all contribute to the development of next step action plans on six theme topics. From 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the evening, we explore human-avian relationships during “Birds of a Feather” with Midori Nicholson and Purnima Barman.
Is your research relevant to the themes of the Roundtable? We invite you to share your research with stewardship practitioners, the International Ornithological Congress participants, and the general public. Please join the discussion of the stewardship of bird and wildlife populations, and their habitats, in BC and elsewhere. The poster session will take place during a networking event from 4:30 – 6:30 pm. Participants will vote on the best poster, for which there will be a non-cash prize.
