Welcome to #WOS2022!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2022 meeting in Santa Fe and helped make it a resounding success! A selection of pre-recorded versions of oral and poster presentations will be available online for six weeks beginning July 25. Be sure to save the date for our 2023 meeting, which will be June 20-23 at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania!

The 2022 Wilson Ornithological Society Conference takes place on the traditional, unceded homelands of the Tiwa, Tewa, Diné, and N’de peoples. We as the participants of this conference and members of Wilson Ornithological Society recognize that the harms of genocide and colonization are ongoing and know it is our responsibility to work against this historical erasure. Indigenous peoples have deep connections to the land and are the roots of their beautiful communities. We honor the land and those who remain stewards of our human, plant, and animal kin throughout the generations. This acknowledgment only becomes meaningful when combined with accountable relationships and informed actions. It is only a first step. We respect the right to Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination and are committed to uplifting Indigenous voices while being better listeners, learners, and partners. We as members of the ornithological and avian conservation community need to examine our own work and our collective work to do better today and in the future.
