ANNOUNCEMENT:

AOC 2022 IS GOING VIRTUAL

To ensure certainty in these dynamic COVID times, AOC is pleased to announce that the conference is going fully online!

While we’d have loved to see you all in person, we have engaged a state-of-the-art virtual conferencing platform that will bring almost everything you’ve come to expect from AOC.

You’ll be able to network with fellow delegates, participate in live Q&As, poster sessions and more. If you’d like to learn more about the virtual conference platform, you can check out the video here or our FAQ page.

As planning continues, we will communicate all updates via our mailing list.


We are pleased to announce that the 11th Australasian Ornithological Conference (AOC) will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 8 – 10 February 2022. The AOC is the primary conference for BirdLife Australia and Birds NZ, and is the largest biennial gathering of enthusiastic amateur and professional ornithologists from Australasia and overseas.

The main aims of these conferences are to:

  • Promote communication and interaction among ornithologists in Australasia;
  • Encourage student participation and provide networking opportunities, particularly for early-career ornithologists;
  • Showcase the best ornithological research from across Australasia.

We hope you can join us for a week of bird talks, excursions, and catching up/making new friends and connections in the ‘City of Sails’. We look forward to welcoming you and showcasing the magnificent birdlife of northern Aotearoa/New Zealand in February 2022.
