About

When it comes to the protection of wildlife, nothing is as essential and effective as a joint effort. From the mountains to the deep seas, human impact on animal survival has dramatically increased and is now more substantial than ever before. The East Adriatic Sea and its nature are no exception. Transboundary collaborations represent the only successful tool for implementing sustainable and effective conservation strategies, particularly for those species whose persistence relies on migration and, thus, the absence of boundaries.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1 November 2017 (23:00 GMT)

DMAD and NHAM are excited to welcome you at the 27th Rufford Conference in Montenegro and look forward to your abstract submission. Since 2012, Rufford Small Grants has been organising conferences from Indonesia to Mexico, and facilitating the creation of valuable networks of researchers. This conference will provide the same unique opportunity. Joining the conference as speaker will allow you to share your research experience, examine encountered problems and develop new ideas with other scientists. The conference aims to establish an online platform for an accurate and effective cross border nature conservation network in the East Adriatic. The platform will be used to create an online “Adriatic Nature Conservation Database” in order to standardise methodologies and support data analyses between research groups.

We will be accepting abstracts for 5-minute short talks, 20-minute long talks and posters. To know more about topic suggestions, deadlines and guidelines is available below.
