Join the movement to reduce human disturbance to coastal wildlife! Sign up for the 5th Annual Central California Coastal Wildlife Disturbance Symposium and help collaborate for the conservation of our coastal wildlife.
Be a part of the collaboration for coastal wildlife conservation. Join other wildlife professionals at this unique symposium at the Mott Training Center among the pines and historic buildings of the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA. From this location perched above the dunes above Asilomar State Beach, you will be nestled in the shade of the Monterey pines while working with others to shape the future of wildlife protection. In the spirit of collaboration, those participating in this gathering will learn of the latest efforts to mitigate human-caused disturbance to an array of coastal species, discuss ideas in a group forum, and network with people from agencies and organizations throughout the state and beyond who are working to protect coastal wildlife.
The goal of this symposium is to maximize our shared efforts to mitigate human-caused disturbance to coastal wildlife. In this setting, we will work together to foster agreement upon common strategies and messaging, create a forum to share new ideas, celebrate innovation, and support collaboration. Working together and pooling knowledge and resources, we can make each of our jobs easier and our efforts more successful!
Abstract Submission Deadline is September 1, 2019
