The only Australian national conference principally servicing the education needs of volunteer wildlife rehabilitators, it has also become popular with veterinarians, veterinary nurses and other with an interest in wildlife welfare. This year, the conference is being held in the Auditorium of the super-modern University of Sydney School of Business (Abercrombie Building).
The conference involves three days of in-venue presentations and forums and a poster session, followed by one day of external excursions and workshops. The aim of the AWRC is to raise the standard of Wildlife Rehabilitation in Australia through education and collaboration. Topics range from hands-on rehabilitation techniques to wildlife rehabilitation ethics and the law. Speakers will include Wildlife Rehabilitators, Veterinarians, Researchers. The conference also presents multiple opportunities to network with your peers and some of the leading lights in the rehabilitation sector.
Keynote speakers already announced include Dr Carol Booth - an environmental consultant with a PhD in Environmental Philosophy, and award-winning Author Tim Low whose books "Feral Future", "The New Nature" and "Where Song Began" are considered by many conservationists as essential reading.
