High school, college, and graduate students can get involved by presenting a talk! A key goal of the symposium is to connect student researchers studying birds to the general public, to showcase ornithological research and to highlight career opportunities in the field of ornithology. Oral presentations should therefore be succinct and memorable, focusing on the ‘coolness’ factor of the research without getting bogged down in minute scientific details.

If you are interested in giving a presentation for WVBS 2018, please email for more information. Thank you!
