ICTC 2023 – What is the International Conservation Translocation Conference?

The International Conservation Translocation Conference (ICTC) is a premier conservation translocation science event, linked to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Conservation Translocation Specialist Group (previously the Reintroduction Specialist Group), part of the IUCN Species Survival Commission. The two previous conferences (as the International Wildlife Reintroduction Conference) were held in Chicago, USA in 2008 and 2018.

The Conference is the highest profile forum targeted at wildlife experts from around the world who undertake conservation translocations. Delegates converge to share expertise in a wide range of themes related to wildlife conservation using translocation as a tool to improve the recovery of threatened species.

The 3rd ICTC will include national and international plenary speakers, presentations, technical updates and workshop discussions, and will bring together in Australia the diverse global community of professionals and students in the field of reintroduction biology to showcase their work and facilitate collaboration through our international network of practitioners.

Conservation translocations have been a critical part of wildlife conservation in Australia for many years, and we invite you to come to Western Australia to celebrate the achievements in this field, both here and around the world.
