We are excited to announce a world-first conference, bringing together the leading experts in swallowtail conservation, which you can stream from the comfort of your own home!
Swallowtails include the most spectacular butterflies in the world but since 1985 expert assessments have shown that dozens of species are threatened. What has been done to protect them? Where are the threats coming from, how are they being addressed and what can we learn from projects to date?
This online conference takes a practical look at situations in the field, drawing together the work of enthusiasts, scientists and communities from across the world, often operating in challenging conditions. Join in, listen, watch and contribute as the practical aspects of saving swallowtails, birdwings and their allies are revealed.
This unique conference will, in the space of just 3 hours in each time-zone, offer seven case studies per session, followed by a live panel session of experts ready to address your questions. Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
Conservationists are working on swallowtails and birdwings as far afield as Fiji, Australia and Papua New Guinea in the eastern hemisphere to Brazil, Jamaica and Florida in the west. Each session is tuned to its regional interests but all talks will be recorded.
So, whether you are in Canberra, Chennai or California, you can take part flexibly without missing a thing. To book your free ticket, with a suggested donation, please visit our pages on the links below. Special thanks go to the Royal Entomological Society for their support and encouragement.
