The 2nd International Forum on the Sub-Antarctic will be held in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia over 26-27 April 2009 under the auspices of Antarctic Tasmania (a business unit within the Tasmanian Department of Economic Development and Tourism, housed in the same suite of offices as ACAP).

 The Forum will have the overall theme of "Environmental Change in the Sub-Antarctic".

Invited speakers and delegates will discuss two broad subjects: Overview of the Sub-Antarctic System (Biota and Physical World)  and  Dynamic Interactions in the Sub-Antarctic System

 The meeting will follow on from the first Forum, held in July 2006, which resulted in a Proceedings published by the Royal Society  of Tasmania.

The Sub-antarctic and southern cool-temperate islands of the Sourthern Ocean are the core breeding sites for nearly all the currently  ACAP-listed species.
