The 24th Conference of The Trumpeter Swan Society (TTSS) will be held in Duncan, BC, Canada, on November 16-18, 2016. The conferences of TTSS, that were begun in 1969, provide the only public forum in North America that brings together private citizens, conservation groups, policy makers, swan managers, and researchers to examine the status and needs of Trumpeter Swans in the U.S. and Canada.
The 24th Conference will focus on both the successes and challenges involved with long-term management of trumpeter swans. Special attention will also be given to be the status, management, and conservation of Trumpeter Swans in the Pacific Flyway and potential conflicts between swans and agriculture during winter. Presentations will examine swan conservation accomplishments and lessons learned and discuss the future challenges. In addition, the Conference will include sessions on the biology, habitat concerns, and management of Trumpeter Swan populations throughout North America. Papers and posters on the biology and management of Tundra Swans and Mute Swans or their interactions with Trumpeter Swans are also invited.
We strongly encourage private partners, agency managers, and biologists involved in Trumpeter Swan restoration, management, and research to participate. If you are interested in making a presentation at the 24th Conference, please contact John Cornely at (email@example.com), Paul Fletcher (firstname.lastname@example.org), or Jim Hawkings (email@example.com) for additional information, including presentation guidelines and submission dates.
