The following workshops are proposed for ICTC 2023 participants. Participation fees to be advised soon. You can register your interest in participating in workshops when you register to attend ICTC 2023.

9-12 November 2023

  • Conservation Translocation Specialist Group Training Workshop

12 November 2023

  • So you have genetic data, how do you use it for your translocations?

Conservation practitioners and end-users undertaking translocations who want to have a better understanding on what the geneticists are saying and how it applies to their species/management actions.

16 November 2023

  • Australian Translocation Practitioners Workshop

A full-day workshop specifically for those working in the Australian translocation space. A range of issues will be discussed including understanding predator thresholds for release (and opportunities for standardised monitoring), long term sustainability of populations within fenced reserves, indigenous involvement in translocations, species composition/order of reintroductions, and practical options for protecting translocated populations from climate change. The workshop will include an informal talk by a translocation ecologist on each theme followed by an open discussion. The workshop is primarily seen as an opportunity to learn and collaborate but publications may be produced from conference outcomes.

16 November 2023

  • An introduction to Disease Risk Analysis for conservation translocations

Conservation practitioners undertaking translocations who want to have a better understanding of the process of DRA and how to approach DRA with transparency when there are high levels of uncertainty.

16 – 17 November 2023

  • Beginner’s Guide to Ecological Modelling for Conservation Translocations

Practitioners and scientists who want to get a broad overview of the ecological modelling techniques that can be used to monitor the outcomes of conservation translocations. Attendees will have the opportunity to nominate their own case-studies for workshopping and group discussion with experts in the field of ecological modelling.

16 November 2023

  • Beyond the Guidelines: designing resilient persistent plant translocations

This workshop is open to all plant translocation practitioners. The workshop will focus on aspects of planning and practice that can improve the likelihood of establishing healthy, resilient and recruiting plant populations, that will persist over the long term. The workshop will include practical examples of sourcing seed or other germplasm types, selecting recipient sites (macro and microsites), post planting management techniques and genetic health assessments. We will also address creation of populations that are resilient to disturbance. We encourage attendance from a range of practitioners including researchers, government, consultancy and community groups.

20 – 24 November 2023

  • Introduction to Ecological Modelling

Practitioners and scientists who wish to get to grips with the basics of ecological modelling techniques for a broad range of applications, such as Distance sampling, mark-recapture, spatial mark recapture and occupancy.
