Translocation digest - March 2013

Translocation projects:

Request to participate in a reintroduction survey:
My MSc. student, Erzsébet Óhegyi is writing her thesis on the funding of reintroduction programmes.
She has developed an online questionnaire - she would be very grateful if you could fill it up with data on your programme:
The results will hopefully be published in an international publication.
Thank you in advance for your help!

11th International Mammalogical Congress 2013, 11 - 16 August 2013, Queen's University Belfast, UK
Symposium: Reintroductions: objectives, methods and obstacles (Grogan, USGS; Schoenecker, USGS)

AWMS (Australasian Society for Wildlife Management) 2013, Massey University in Palmerston North, New Zealand.

Conference theme: "Advances in Reintroduction of Australasian Fauna 1993-2013"

The main motivation for this theme is that it is now 20 years since the successful 1993 conference on “Reintroduction biology of Australian and New Zealand fauna”, which in turn led to the book of the same name edited by Melody Serena. It is therefore timely to review the many innovations and research advances that have been made over the last 20 years, and discuss future challenges and directions.

Although our focus is on Australasia, some of you from outside the region may be keen to find out more about what is happening here and/or provide some international perspective.  The International Marine Mammal Conference is being held in Dunedin from 9-13 December, so this could be an additional incentive for some of you to visit New Zealand.

Further information is available at the conference website (, and you can go on the mailing list for announcements by contacting
