The WSU is a consortium (non-profit, non-governmental organization) of all 21 of the world’s main regional and international seabird research and conservation organizations, and established its non-profit status in 2012.
Registration is now open for the 2nd World Seabird Conference, being held in Cape Town, South Africa. Register now to take advantage of early bird rates and be part of the amazing collaboration of scientists, researchers, students, and conservationists.
The goal of the WSU is to serve as a global network of seabird organizations to enhance seabird conservation and research. Seabirds.net is the global information portal for the World Seabird Union dedicated to the facilitation of communication and data sharing between seabird scientists around the world.
