ACAP will hold the 10th Meeting of its Advisory Committee in Wellington, New Zealand next month, preceded by meetings of its Seabird Bycatch Working Group (SBWG8) and Population and Conservation Status Working Group (PaCSWG4).
Meeting Documents (available in the three ACAP languages of English, French and Spanish) and Information Papers (available in their submitted language only) are now publicly available on this website. To access them click on documents on the home page bar and then open Advisory Committee and Working Groups. Most documents may be read in their entirety but some have been password-restricted by their submitting Parties and only their abstracts are in the public domain.

Provisional agendas and meeting schedules are also available for consultation on this web site at the above links.
