The 16th North American Caribou Workshop (NACW) will be held from May 16th to 20th, 2016 in the beautiful port city of Thunder Bay, Ontario. The NACW is the foremost conference of its kind addressing caribou biology, research and management. With a focus on North American caribou, it enjoys international attendance and media coverage. Ontario is pleased to host this biannual event for the first time since 1996.
The theme of the conference is Connections. Conference activities will place caribou knowledge within an ecosystem and biodiversity context; link to or build upon previous research; foster successful partnerships in caribou conservation, incorporate cultural interests and values; and integrate among the disciplines (physiology, habitat, predator-prey relationships, and management strategies).
The conference will consist of plenary and technical sessions, poster presentations, pre- and post- conference activities, and a public event.
Registration is still open.
This conference is made possible by our sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, information can be found here.
The Organizing Committee and Sponsors of the 16th NACW have provided travel grants for students presenting a technical paper or poster at the conference.
