Tatsuya will be giving a keynote presentation titled “Flying over the Tower of Babel: Implications of language barriers on shorebird conservation” at the first ever International Shorebird Twitter Conference 2020 (7 – 8 October 2020), an online global event as part of the International Wader Study Group’s 50th anniversary.

The conference is still seeking submissions, so visit the website for more detail and be part of this exciting event!

It is a great pleasure to welcome our new member, Pablo Negret, to the translatE project!

Pablo will be working on implications of language diversity in vertebrate conservation. See People for his research interests and what he has been working on so far.

We are looking for potential collaborators and students who are keen to work on language barriers in science. There are multiple scholarships (although highly competitive!) for graduate students at the University of Queensland, with the next application for the International Scholarship opening on the 27th June.

If you are interested, please send your two-page CV and one-page summary of your research interest to Tatsuya Amano through our Contact Page to discuss possibilities.
