From 31st of October to 2nd of November 2018 the Second International Symposium on jackals and related species will be held in Marathon Bay – Attica, Greece. The aim of this meeting is to create a fertile ground for productive discussions between novice and experienced golden jackal (Canis aureus) scientists but also on other related species like African black-backed jackal (Canis mesomelas), side-striped jackal (Canis adustus) and African wolf (Canis anthus).
The Second International Jackal Symposium is addressed to academics – graduate and undergraduate researchers alike – working or interested in the field of jackal and related species ecology, to share their information with other colleagues from different research groups with known experts or scientific community.
