At the Fourth International Workshop on the Conservation of the Red-billed Chough held in October 10-12, 2013 in the University of Trás-Os-Montes e Alto Douro, Vila Real (Portugal), was unanimously expressed the desire that the next workshop would take place in Segovia, Spain.
The organization Foro GeoBiosfera (NGO) in collaboration with the National Museum of Natural Sciences of Madrid (CSIC) and the support of the City Council of Segovia, calls for the holding of this next Workshop, inviting all interested parts to participate.
This is the first call of the Workshop. In the near future we will complet information on aspects such as the precise location of the event, communications by road, bus, train and plane, places of accommodation, registration fees and scope of services offered. It will also answer the questions that the participants may generate.
This Workshop is open to all interested people, professionals and public and private institutions on choughs, both red-billed and alpine choughs.
Communications from any part of the world are welcome about diferrent aspects related with choughs, including:
Cultural aspects: literature, history, music and exhibitions of painting, photography, crafts.
Education and dissemination
Protection and legislation
The structure conceived for the realization of the event has two committees, an organizing committee constituted by Foro GeoBiosfera and a scientific committee composed of researchers.
The electronic contact address of the Organization of the Congress where all the information, communications, etc. must be sent is: comunicación@forogeobiosfera.org
We hope that this event will be an outstanding one in the scientific and conservation world related to these unique bird species.
We would like those interested in this celebration to disseminate this call and if possible send us addresses of possible entities and interested people around the world.
