The 2008 Parrots International Symposium takes place May 30 to June 1, 2008 on the HMS Queen Mary in Long Beach, Calif. The 2008 theme is “Parrots of the Caribbean.”
The convention presentations are focused on parrot conservation and field research projects as well as general interest parrot-related topics relating to both wild and companion parrots. The two-day symposium features experts from South America, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, the Bahamas, Bonaire, Jamaica, Trinidad, Europe, the United States and more. The formal Poster Session on Saturday gives conservation and research groups the opportunity to highlight points in their studies and/or projects.
