  • Napier War Memorial Conference Centre


  • Meet the Atea-a-Rangi team at the Waitangi Regional Park and join us for a tour of Ātea a Rangi and the Waitangi wetlands. You can either join a group of cyclists to get to and from the park, or take the bus (bike hire/rental bus included in the field trip price). After the field trip you can join the group for dinner in a restaurant near the conference venue.
  • Join us for a day at the Cape Sanctuary. We'll start the day with visiting the ocean beach revegetation site, followed by a tour of the kaka and shore plover aviaries. Transport by bus and a packed lunch is included.
  • This workshop is presented by the Wildlife Acoustics team. The interactive workshop will provide hands-on experience with the Song Meter Mini and Song Meter Micro for passive acoustic monitoring. Attendees will pair their phone or tablet to the recorder and use the Song Meter Configurator app to change settings and schedules. Then we will demonstrate free Kaleidoscope Lite software to briefly look at sonograms of the recordings and explore the ‘detect and extract’ feature. Song Meter Micro recorders will be made available for participants to use. It will be helpful to have the Wildlife Acoustics Song Meter Configurator app already downloaded on your device. Attendees are also encouraged to bring their own laptops to play along with the session. Data and full training licences will be provided for the session.
  • Please join us on a field trip to the Poutiri Ao ō Tāne restoration project. The project aims to support native species to return to and flourish within the Maungaharuru-Tūtira catchment.
    It was launched in 2011 and was the first of its kind in Aotearoa to test widescale predator control in farmland using a collaborative and holistic approach to landscape-scale ecological restoration. One of many project highlights has been successfully reintroducing kōrure/mottled petrel and tītī/Cook’s petrel to the most inland site in the world. Transport by bus and a packed lunch are included.
  • Topics to be discussed include, finding a post-doctoral position, where to get funding, how
    to write a successful funding application, publishing in scientific journals, and where to after postgraduate study?
    The workshop is free. The workshop will precede the conference Ice-breaker which will be held nearby.
