The 6th International Black Grouse Conference

17-20/9 2012



The first International Black Grouse Conference was organized in Belgium, in 2000. Since then the conferences have been organized in different countries to gather black grouse specialists from across Europe. The 6th meeting will be held in Sweden. The black grouse is a threatened species in North-West Europe but is not endangered in Sweden. Conference participants will have a chance to examine the species in a landscape holding viable populations in both protected and unprotected sites.

We are pleased to invite you to the 6th International Black Grouse Conference.
