If you are interested in waders (shorebirds), what's happening to
local and flyway populations (not good news), and their future
conservation (a glimmer of hope?), you only have

 four weeks to register for Australasian Shorebird Conference in
Hobart (now too late to submit a paper).

7th Australasian Shorebird Conference, University of Tasmania, Hobart 4-6 September 2009.

The ASC is held every two years to provide an opportunity for those
people interested in shorebirds to exchange information, discuss
relevant issues and develop strategies for improving the status of
these species, many of which are threatened throughout their range.

The theme of the Seventh Australasian Shorebird Conference will be:
Resident and Migratory Shorebirds – Managing Their Future.

This will encompass several inter related themes including:

Future prospects for shorebirds in the East-Asian Australasian Flyway.

Knowledge gaps in regard to Resident shorebirds.

Beach nesting birds and sea level rise.

Conservation status and threats to shorebirds.

Registration can be made downloaded at
 or by internet using you credit card via

Hope to see you there!
