The Nordic Board for Wildlife Research and the Nordic Section of Wildlife Disease Association are pleased to announce the 17th Nordic Congress of Wildlife Research, which will take place on September 19-23, 2022 in Uppsala, Sweden. The congress will be hosted in cooperation with the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, the Swedish Association for Hunting and Wildlife Management and the National Veterinary Institute.
The aim of the Nordic Congress of Wildlife Research is to bring together all those active in wildlife research and management to meet and discuss challenging issues in wildlife ecology and management in a broad sense. This includes natural and social scientists, wildlife and land managers, political decision-makers and anyone else working with related questions, e.g., at non-governmental, governmental and intergovernmental organisations.
The Nordic Congress of Wildlife Research adopts a broad concept of wildlife management, including policies and actions with the purpose of conservation, sustainable use, or control of wildlife and its habitats, in order to safeguard sustainable relationships between wildlife and other human interests. The Congress welcomes theoretical, empirical, and practical presentations from all areas of wildlife science, including social sciences and human dimensions of wildlife, with the primary task of creating the scientific basis for the enhancement of wildlife management and conservation practices. Despite the emphasis on Nordic contexts, the Congress invites contributions from around the world to get a broader international perspective. The Congress highlights the need to bring different disciplines together, for example to handle wildlife diseases, to mitigate conflicts and to successfully implement new knowledge into management and policy.
