Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels

The Fifth World Seabird Twitter Conference is to take place this April

The Fifth World Seabird Twitter Conference (#WSTC5) will take place over 9-11 April.

“This is a great opportunity to get your seabird research or conservation work out to a wide audience, cost- and carbon-free.”

The first twitter conference for seabirds took place in 2015 (click here).

During the conference, each presenter will be given 15 minutes in which to send four tweets (each of 280 characters) about their topic. By following the hashtag specific to the conference (#WSTC5) the tweets can then be seen by people from all over the world.

“The first four years of the World Seabird Twitter Conference were a great success. For example, during just the three days of last year’s conference, the #WSTC4 hashtag was used 2,667 times by 601 contributors – reaching 1.2 million people. We had 100 presenters from over 20 countries – making it a truly global event.”

Abstract submission is now open and closes on 15 February.
