The 4th Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts (CWW 2017) will be held in Estoril, Portugal on 6 – 8 September, 2017.
Despite significant advances in recent years in our understanding of the impacts of wind energy on wildlife, challenges remain regarding planning and policy, assessment of direct and indirect effects on wildlife, methodological approaches, technology development, and mitigation strategies and their effectiveness. The CWW 2017 aims to maintain and promote the international cooperation among researchers, developers, regulators and stakeholders that over the years have contributed to building knowledge on this topic.
Based on the success of previous conferences, organizers expect to reach over 300 participants representing private and public companies, universities, professional groups and governmental agencies worldwide. The conference venue will include ample space for technical sessions as well as an exhibition area where developers, technology suppliers and other members of the industry can present their services and products.
This annual event provides a forum for conservation leadership and brings together more than 700 leaders from fish and wildlife agencies and conservation groups from all 50 states, U.S. Territories, Canada and Mexico in order to discuss conservation policy and management issues and accomplishments. Attendees include key decision makers in the field of fish and wildlife, including; directors, assistant directors, program managers, and others involved in fisheries, wildlife habitat, law enforcement, legal affairs, industry, as well as public affairs (information and education).
Highlights of the event include collaborative committee and working group meetings, thought-provoking Plenary Session, recognition of outstanding achievements at the Awards Banquet, Welcome and Reception, and plenty of social and networking opportunities.
Join us in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for a unique and memorable TWS experience that will include up to 900 educational presentations, more than 40 networking events and plenty of engagement and learning opportunities in our TWS Members Activity Center.
Achieving effective results as a wildlife professional requires exposure to new thoughts and best practices. It requires an effective network of professionals and suppliers who have information and solutions you need. At this conference, learn, connect and engage in ways that will help propel your career forward and inspire you to strive for even better results in the areas of wildlife science and management that are important to you.
