Corresponding Membership

Do You Want to be a Corresponding Member of PSG?

The Pacific Seabird Group wants to foster communication with people who have interests in seabird research or management in other countries of the world. Of course, anyone may join PSG and thereby communicate with other members via letters or articles in Pacific Seabirds, or by attending PSG Annual Meetings. However, PSG recognizes that annual membership fees may be a hardship for students and other potential members in developing countries, or for those working in regions with little or no institutional support for seabird conservation.

Therefore, the Corresponding Membership Committee offers up to 16 memberships in PSG, primarily to foster involvement of seabird researchers and conservationists in developing countries.  In return, each corresponding member is asked to contribute a short article or note to Pacific Seabirds at least once every few years (more often would be great too), outlining some aspects of seabird research or conservation in their region of interest. Corresponding memberships are reviewed periodically by the committee for compliance with the (rather simple) guidelines for support of corresponding members.

If you are interested in becoming a Corresponding Member, please contact any current  PSG Officer or Melanie Steinkamp, Chairman of the Corresponding Membership Committee.
