NZES 2021 Conference

The 2021 New Zealand Ecological Society conference will be held at the Turner Centre at Kerikeri from 29 November - 1 December 2021 with field trips held on 2 December.

The conference rarely comes to the Far North, so we encourage delegates to make the most of this opportunity. As well as sharing the latest ideas in ecology and conservation, delegates will have the opportunity to observe some of Northland's iconic biodiversity in one of New Zealand's most important cultural centres.

  • Field trips will take place on Thursday 2 December
  • Student Day will be held on Sunday 28 November at NorthTec Campus, Kerikeri

The call for symposia will close on April 30th with abstracts due by September 17th (note deadline extension). Please see the conference website for further information.
