The 6th International Conference in Arctic Fox Biology
The international conference in arctic fox biology is the most important meeting point for arctic fox researchers, conservation managers, policy makers, tour operators, students and any other people interested in arctic foxes and its arctic habitats and ecosystems. It has for a long time been a tradition that end-users of environmental research, i.e. various stakeholders and management authorities participate at these conferences.
Since 1991, circumpolar arctic fox biologists have established a network which has previously arranged five international conferences in arctic fox biology. The conferences took place in Sweden in 1991 and 2009, in the UK in 2001, in Iceland in 2013 and in Canada in 2017. The now upcoming conference will for the first time be arranged by Norway, through the Norwegian Polar Institute, in Longyearbyen, Svalbard.
The 6th international conference in arctic fox biology will be held at the Svalbard Research Park, University Studies in Svalbard (UNIS)/Norwegian Polar Institute (NPI), https://www.unis.no/
Longyearbyen, Svalbard August 27-30, 2021.
For those of you that registered for the 2020 arrangement, that now has been postponed to 2021 because of COVID-19, and still want to participate in 2021 do not need to register again.
