The count down to the Fifteenth Pan African Ornithological Congress (PAOC15) has begun with less than a year before Ornithologists from all over Africa and beyond will converge on the resort town of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
An exciting time is envisaged, as researchers, students and bird lovers connect to promote the study and conservation of birds – an integral part of African wildlife heritage.
Diarize 16-20 November 2020 and register early to take advantage of early bird rates. The PAOC15 programme includes a packed schedule of Keynote presentations, Symposia, Round Table Discussions, and Social events.
Visit www.paoc15.org for more information on Congress Registration, Accommodation, Events, Mid Congress Excursion Day, Travel Information and Pre and Post Congress Tours.
Get involved in PAOC15 by submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation. Keep an eye on the PAOC15 website for details on Calls for Abstracts and deadlines for submission.
Students, the future of African ornithology and the conservation of African birds and their habitats is in your hands, so you are encouraged to participate!
The venue for PAOC15 is the resort town of Victoria Falls, a Key Biodiversity Area (KBA). The Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is also one of the greatest attractions in Africa. Wilderness, culture and adventure unite around the spectacular Waterfall to make this a genuine bucket-list destination. Not only does it offer the best views of the iconic falls, but it also has amazing wildlife and birding opportunities.
Sidi Imad Cherkaoui is the Chairman of the PAOC Committee.
