The 10th Australian Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference is to be held in Melbourne in 2016.
The Australia-wide wildlife rehabilitation sector which consists of thousands of individuals and hundreds of groups, is unfunded and relies on sporadic grants and donations. Since its inception in 2003 in Melbourne at Werribee, wildlife conferences have been hosted in a different state every year for the first six, then every two years since. These have increased knowledge, and fostered contact networks across Australia. For wildlife rehabilitators, these conferences have become an important source of support, information and learning, reaffirming the important growing worldwide movement of conservation.
The 2016 AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE REHABILITATION CONFERENCE is being hosted by the Victorian Wildlife Council, a not for profit organisation and organised by a team of skilled and motivated and dedicated Wildlife rehabilitators from Victoria. The conference is to be held at Peninsula C, Central Pier 14, Docklands in the heart of Melbourne a facility that has a maximum seating capacity for 300 attendees.
The theme for this conference is Connecting to Country
We wish to include presentations on the many aspects of wildlife care and rehabilitation which will include speakers that can provide topics to do with wildlife care, rescue and rehabilitation. Speakers are invited from the Wildlife network community including veterinary, scientific, environmental and research areas as well as legal constraints, and other matters pertaining to the care of Australian wildlife.
Each speaker will be given 30 minutes, which will include five minutes for questions from the floor. Additional questions will be collected and answered later in the conference.
Presenters will be required to allow the publication of their papers on the conference website and in the printed proceedings. To facilitate your attendance, we offer presenters free registration for the day of their presentation.
Please express your interest in presenting by email your abstract, as soon as possible to
