Dedicated to the study and conservation of Pacific Seabirds and their environment.

PSG Activities

PSG has an active program that includes annual meetings, hosting of symposia, several committees, and publications.

Annual Meetings

At yearly conferences, seabird researchers share their discoveries and conservation concerns with each other and the public. Reflecting the international distribution of Pacific seabirds, PSG annual meetings are often attended by people from throughout the world. Attendees benefit from the support, constructive criticism and insights of fellow participants, as well as from the exchange of scientific reports. Student presentations and reviews of ongoing research are encouraged. Learn More »
