40th International Sea Turtle Symposium

March 25th through 28th (Perth time)

How to navigate venue:

Dear Attendee,


Your event is produced by Virtual Chair and will take place on the gather.town platform.  This platform provides a 2D layout in which participants can navigate by moving an avatar using arrow keys.  When a group of avatars are in close proximity, a video conference is started.  Tables and chairs provide private video conferencing space.

*Please note that you will have the best experience using either Chrome or Firefox browsers on a computer.  The use of personal devices such as cell phones and tablets is not optimized.

*When signing on for the first time, please allow Gather to access your microphone and camera for the best experience.
