International Tracker Symposium – ITS

International Tracking Symposium

After what seems like an age since Rene, Joscha and myself first thought of offering an event to promote and showcase wildlife tracking across Europe. We can at last announce the first European International Tracking Symposium! 

This is an online event scheduled over the weekend of 25, 26 and 27 February 2022

Over the three days we have lectures and discussions from leading wildlife trackers and naturalists from across Europe and beyond, covering a wide range of subjects. These include skull identification, insect sign, ageing tracks, bird language, using tracking to monitor wildlife, where traditional tracking meets modern technology and much, much more.

Watch this space over the next few weeks and months as we announce further details of our speakers and their presentations.

Together with sharing knowledge, our goals are to connect European tracking enthusiasts and to build our tracking community.

The cost of the event for the full 3 days giving access to all three days of the symposium is 80,00 Euros. 

We also offer a student discount for 65.00 Euros as well as a 100.00 Euro option for super supporters

This will cover the cost of running the event which this time will be hosted in conjunction with the Dutch mammal society (Zoogdier Vereniging). We are very grateful that they have agreed to help us in the organisation of the symposium.

If any profit is made after these costs, we intend to use it to support the establishment of the CyberTracker evaluation system in less prosperous parts of Europe and beyond.  We also intend to record the symposium and make it available for 3 months after the event at no extra charge to ticket holders.

Details of payment option will be available soon but, in the meantime, if you could register your interest it would make planning the event easier for us.

Please help in promoting this event by sharing within your network

We really hope you can join us in February

Kind regards 

John Rhyder (UK), Rene Nauta (NL) and Joscha Grolms (DE)
