BOUsci23: Global Flyways

Over the past months BirdEyes researcher Wouter Vansteelant together with Jose Alves of the Portuguese EcoFlyway team led the development of a scientific committee and program for the upcoming BOUsci23 Global Flyways virtual conference, on November 21st-22nd. Over the course of 3 back-to-back 8h sessions the conference will synthesise bird migration research in the Africa-Eurasia, Americas and Asia Pacific flyways, respectively. By forming sub-committees for each flyway the team was able to attract a diverse set of keynote speakers working on varied topics, including BirdEyes’ very own Mohamed Henriques who will lay the groundwork for a panel discussion on building equitable, flyway-scale research networks. The full program is online and registrations are open.

Centre for global ecological change at the University of Groningen

Birdeyes is a science and creative centre that views the world - almost literally - through the eyes of birds. More and more birds are flying around with tiny transmitters, loggers and other high technology on their backs and legs. This generates an unimaginable amount of information. By cleverly combining such data with other sources of information, and by using new ways to tell stories and share the insights with, BirdEyes strives to open up a new knowledge network. The centre aims to be an innovative part of the University of Groningen and is linked to the Rudolph Agricola School for Sustainable Development. BirdEyes, with empirical and inspirational roots in the farthest corners of the world.
