For Science Journalists


Are you a journalist who covers wildlife science, conservation, or related issues? Science journalists interested in covering research presented at the 2019 American Ornithological Society meeting in Anchorage may request gratis registration!

To be eligible, journalists must be either 1) current staff members at a recognized news outlet or 2) established freelancers who are current members of a professional organization such as NASW or SEJ and who can provide recent clips, a letter from a commissioning editor, or other similar evidence of their work in the field. AOS reserves the right to decline to provide gratis registration if we feel that someone does not meet these criteria.

AOS communications staff and meeting organizers will work with journalists attending the meeting to direct them to sessions that fit their interests, set up interviews if requested, etc. If you are interested, please contact Rebecca Heisman, AOS Communications Specialist, at
