VANCOUVER COMES ALIVE WITH BIRDS IN AUGUST 2018
The IOCongress2018 combines the prestige of the 27th International Ornithological Congress with the City of Vancouver’s annual Bird Week. The organizers are creating the first ever Vancouver International Bird Festival — a world celebration of birds in all their dimensions — nature, art, music, performance, film, photography and adventure. Two thousand scientists from 100 countries plus tens of thousands members of the public will be engaged, educated and entertained through exhibitions, a bird fair, trade show, tours and workshops on birds – a gateway to nature.
