We are pleased to announce that the Vertebrate Pest Conference, being held in Monterrey Bay, California from 11–14 March 2024, is eager to accept abstracts for talks related to wild pigs. To that end, the National Wild Pig Task Force will be sponsoring a special symposium at the meeting for wild pigs, as well as having a meeting of our membership at the meeting to discuss the future of the Task Force, and emerging issues in wild pig management. We strongly encourage all members that are able to make plans to present, and meet at the VPC.
The Vertebrate Pest Conference, held every two years, is a scientific forum for discussing and exchanging information on human wildlife conflicts. Participants and attendees include leading authorities on vertebrate pest management from around the world. Papers are presented in English. Abstracts are due November 17, 2023 (extended deadline for the National Wild Pig Task Force). All speakers are expected to submit a manuscript. All manuscripts will be peer edited and published in the 31st VP Conference Proceedings.
