We are hosting our seventh North American Ornithological Conference online in its first-ever virtual format during the week of 10-15 August 2020, instead of meeting as planned in Puerto Rico this year. As our modified logo with the clever corvid (crow) proudly pronounces, this will be THE CONFERENCE COVID-19 COULD NOT CANCEL! We already have more than 1,000 attendees registered for the 6-day conference and have an exciting line-up of plenary lectures, oral and poster presentations, lightning talks, workshops, round-table discussions, and fun events. Anyone interested in birds is welcome to join us!
We are raising funds to provide free or highly reduced registration rates for students from all over the world, early professional ornithologists, and professional colleagues from the Caribbean, Latin America, and other special countries. Some of the proceeds will also be donated to the Puerto Rico Ornithological Society (Sociedad Ornitólogica Puertorriqueña), a non-profit organization focused on increasing the awareness of Puerto Rico’s bird life and the conservation and sustainable management of their habitats. We support their efforts even if we cannot be there in person this year!
Please choose something fun—an avant-garde face mask, a practical, commemorative mug, or some snappy apparel to wear—and while you are at it, consider an extra donation to support the study and conservation of birds in the face of COVID-19!
This meeting is co-hosted by the American Ornithological Society, Association of Field Ornithologists, Society of Canadian Ornithologists/Societe des Ornithologistes du Canada, and Wilson Ornithological Society in partnership with Birds Caribbean, CIPAMEX, Neotropical Ornithological Society, Para la Naturaleza, and the Waterbird Society.
Proudly support international bird research—and THE CONFERENCE COVID-19 COULD NOT CANCEL!
