The aim of the Nordic Congress of Wildlife Research is to bring together all those active in wildlife research and management to meet and discuss challenging issues in wildlife ecology and management in a broad sense. This includes natural and social scientists, wildlife and land managers, political decision-makers and anyone else working with related questions, e.g., at non-governmental, governmental and intergovernmental organisations.

Themes and keynote speakers:

  • Past experiences and future challenges in wildlife management (related to the 50-year anniversary for the Nordic Board for Wildlife Research in 2021)
  • The need to bring wildlife ecology and wildlife veterinary sciences together to handle wildlife diseases
  • Combining ecology and social sciences to mitigate conflicts between humans about wildlife and management
  • Wildlife disease – cross boundary – climate change
