OSME Summer Meeting 2020 goes virtual


One of the few positive things to come out of the global coronavirus pandemic is the rise of online webinars, meetings and conferences. Whether these will totally replace the face-to-face meetings that many of us are used to remains to be seen. However, there is no doubt that they can be a valuable addition for small international charities like OSME to engage with members and supporters that would otherwise be unable to attend the traditional meeting or conference.

The OSME Virtual Summer Meeting will take place on 15 August from 10.30 am until 12.45 pm (BST). An exciting line-up of speakers from across the OSME region is planned, including talks from Richard Porter (Socotra – updates from an Arabian Jewel), Zülfü Ferecli (Developing the next generation of birders in Azerbaijan) and Dr Ghassan Ramadan (Jaradi – The birds of Lebanon).

There will also be a 'meet the Sandgrouse Editor' discussion session, where Dr Paul Donald will invite questions and comments on OSME's journal to help develop a future strategy for the highly respected publication.
