Celebrating the Diversity of the Caribbean
BirdsCaribbean 21st International Conference
July 13-17, 2017
Join us in Topes de Collantes, Cuba, July 13-17, 2017. Wildlife professionals, ornithologists, educators, community leaders, students, and interested citizens from 30 countries/islands will gather in the beautiful Sierra de Escambray mountains of Cuba, together with over 60 Cuban colleagues for 5+ days of networking, learning, and discussion about the latest science and strategies to solve our shared conservation challenges.
The Scientific Committee has put together an exciting program, including CUBA DAY—presentations by our Cuban colleagues showcasing the important research, conservation and education work they are doing. Visit the conference website for information on workshops, symposia, paper sessions, field trips, keynote speakers, travel logistics, registration, and more. The conference website is being updated regularly so check back often.

Call for papers – abstracts are due by midnight (EDT) on Sunday, May 7th
Early bird registration deadline – Sunday, May 21st
We are planning incredible early morning, pre-, mid- and post-conference field trips for you. Be sure to visit the Field Trip pages and consider arriving early to Cuba or staying on after the meeting with your spouse, friends and family to explore Cuba and enjoy birding and seeing most of Cuba’s 26 endemic species, as well as its gorgeous countryside, rich culture and history.
Sign-up forms for pre- and post-conference field trips will be available shortly to reserve your spot on one of these once-in-a-lifetime field trips, offered at special very low prices for conference delegates only.
