Migrant Landbird Study Group

Promoting collaborative research for migratory landbirds across flyways

The Pan-African Ornithological Congress (PAOC) is held once every four years and it brings together hundreds of professional and dedicated amateur ornithologists. The Fifteenth Pan-African Ornithological Congress (PAOC15) will be held from 16 to 20 November 2020 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe in the Southern African region.

The aims and purposes of the congress are:

  • To further the study of African birds
  • To promote the preservation of African birds as an integral part of the African Heritage
  • To foster the appreciation of birds and discussion of African birds in relation to man
  • To disseminate information on African birds through appropriate international meetings (e.g. the Congresses) and publications (e.g. the proceedings of the Congresses).
