Latornell Student Poster Competition

Virtual Student Poster Competition The Latornell Conservation Symposium is hosting a virtual student poster competition on May 27th. More information on the competition format, viewing the posters, and watching the competition coming soon.

Calling All Students – Call for Abstracts!

The annual student poster competition has been an important part of the Latornell Conservation Symposium and the poster competition will be held in a virtual format this year. The poster competition is an excellent opportunity for students to present completed research and also encourages students who are part way through their research to showcase their work to interested professionals working within a diverse number of environmental and conservation fields.

The poster competition offers a great forum for you to test out and further explore theories with these keen professionals. Competition participants can expect to be engaged with thoughtful questions and comments from attendees.

There are also cash prizes to be won, from $200 – $500 for the top posters and presenters!

Don’t delay in applying – only 12 posters will be selected! The deadline for submitting an abstract is Monday, April 12th, 2021. For more information and to apply to participate in the student poster competition, please visit the Student Poster Call page.

Latornell Conservation Symposium on Hiatus

The Latornell Conservation Symposium will not be taking place in 2020. We feel that we will all need a while to get our feet back under us after grappling with the impacts and – no doubt, the aftermath of pandemic conditions. We’re going to use this time to review the larger Latornell Conservation Symposium and make sure that it fits with the way we all do business moving forward.

We’re proud of the many programs, presentations and keynotes that we have been able to share with our many delegates, exhibitors and sponsors for these many years. We want to continue to bring Ontario conservationists together to talk about the big issues and to develop the collaborations that we need in order to find solutions.

So please allow us to keep in touch with you over the next few months so you can see what we’re up to and help us to shape the future of the Latornell Conservation Symposium. If you haven’t already, please sign up for our Latornell newsletter. And, we’ll see you soon.
