The Vancouver Avian Research Centre (VARC) is pleased to announce it will host the 2015 Western Bird Banding Association's (WBBA) annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from September 4th - 7th.

The meeting theme, Banding across Borders, signifies the power of partnerships across cultures and countries to leverage our collective expertise to affect bird science, conservation and land management. In addition to participants from Canada and the USA, we hope to see as many people as possible from our partner countries in Latin America.

In addition to great talks from WBBA members, and a keynote address from John Reynolds of Simon Fraser University (SFU), we are pleased to announce a Special Session within the scientific program: The use of bird monitoring data in making sound land use and management decisions.

We have also arranged a number of exciting field trips which will be led by some of BC's best birders so would also like to extend a very warm welcome to the broader birding community to attend these and/or any of the scientific sessions.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Vancouver and beautiful British Columbia!
