The 1st International Convention on the Conservation of Psittadae
Due to the lack of attendees will unfortunately now not take place
I have just heard from Loro Parque that the 1st International Convention on the Conservation of Psittadae - Science, Policy and Practice, which was scheduled to be held from 20th to 22nd September 2010, will unfortunately now not take place. This is due to lack of attendees. The dire global financial situation continues to affect scientific, zoological and conservation organisations and institutions particularly badly. The main convention from 22nd to 25th September will, however, take place as scheduled. I have removed the information about the scientific convention and information about the main convention with booking forms from the website.
Despite the financial situation interest in the scientific convention was very high worldwide. Therefore Loro Parque will consider organising such a convention in addition to the main convention in 2014.
