The Waterbird Society Annual Meeting

October 9 @ 8:00 am October 12 @ 5:00 pm

The 47th Annual Meeting of the Waterbird Society will be held in beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA the week of October 9 – October 12, 2023. Meeting details will be posted soon. We hope you can join us!

Greater Fort Lauderdale is the gateway to the Everglades, where wild beauty makes up almost two-thirds of the destination’s total area. Take an airboat ride and witness tropical and subtropical flora, fauna, and wildlife from alligators to Florida panthers. The Everglades also is home to the Seminole Indians, who invite visitors to learn about their proud, ancient culture. South Florida has an abundance of national parks, state parks, national wildlife refuges, and nature preserves. It is also home to the third largest living coral reef system in the world. South Florida also hosts some of the most unique waterbird species found nowhere else in the continental United States.

The Local Committee and Scientific Program Committee is planning a robust meeting full of engaging plenaries, presentations, training workshops and events for students and activities that promote diversity and inclusion, and exciting field trips.
