Following previous international symposia of the Wetlands International/IUCN-SSC Swan Specialist Group – held at Slimbridge (UK, 1971), Sapporo (Japan, 1980), Oxford (UK, 1989), Virginia (USA 2001), Easton, Maryland (USA 2014), and Tartu (Estonia, 2018) – we are delighted to announce that a joint 7th International Swan Symposium and 26th Trumpeter Swan Society Swan Conference will be held at the Snow King Resort, Jackson, Wyoming on 24 – 27 October 2022. This symposium is hosted by The Trumpeter Swan Society and the Ricketts Conservation Foundation, in partnership with the IUCN-SSC Swan Specialist Group.
The programme is still in development, but will include a 1-day mid-conference excursion. Delegates are also able to visit the National Parks independently before and after the conference, with further information on options to be provided later on this year.
