INTERNATIONAL, ONLINE CONFERENCE
Wader Headstarting: Learning from Experience
1-2 March 2022, Online
In a world where waders are facing increasing pressures and many populations have declined or are declining, there is a growing interest in headstarting as a conservation tool.
Headstarting is a relatively new technique for waders. It is showing promise for some species in some situations, but there is a lot to learn and many pitfalls to avoid.
We are running a conference to bring together those involved in headstarting and related methods for birds, and those interested in learning about the technique, with the aim of sharing information, improving collective understanding and helping to ensure this method is effectively developed, deployed and monitored.
The plan for the conference is currently being formed but here's what we anticipate so far:
Duration: 2 days
Dates: 1-2 March 2022
Location: online (probably via Zoom, to be confirmed)
Registration: September to December 2021
Information will be added to this web page as plans are confirmed.
