This is a reminder for the 6th IUCN-Wetlands International CRG meeting and the 9th International European Conference on Cormorants, to be held in Osijek, Croatia from 23 to 27 April 2014. This is a rare opportunity to meet other Cormorant researchers in a friendly atmosphere and in a fantastic place...
The conference promises to be an exciting meeting again, as people from 15 countries including Nepal and India already registered. The general theme of the conference is “Cormorants and migration” and a workshop about colour ringing and telemetry of cormorants is scheduled. The provisional program will be available on our website in a few days time here. You can still send your abstract proposal, both for poster and oral presentation to Stef van Rijn [firstname.lastname@example.org].
Registration is still open for a limited number of participants through this page. The Croatian Society for Bird and Nature protection, co-organizer of the Conference, negotiated for an affordable price for this venue. Registration cost (including accommodation for four nights, meals, conference fee and an exciting boat-trip excursion to the Kopacki Rit National Park) is kept low 285 €, based at double room, thanks to various subsidies. Please pay this sum to the local organization of the conference, Hrvatsko društvo za zaštitu ptica i prirode (Croatian Society for Bird and Nature Protection), best before 15 April to the following account, at Zagrebacka banka d.d., IBAN HR59 2360 0001 1016 0202 1, with the mention CRG-Osijek.
