Welcome to our NVG website

Joint-meeting of NVG and Zoology 27th-29th of November in Groningen

We are pleased to announce that for our 27th annual meeting we will team up with the KNDV (Dutch Royal Society of Zoologists) and BZS (Royal Belgian Zoological Society). The PhD meeting will be the 27th of November 2019.

We are currently finalizing the details, including the organization of the scientific and social programs, as well as the lodging. In short, we stick to our own program for the Wednesday (PhD workshop followed by dinner and the evening lecture) as well as Thursday morning.

The joint meeting starts Thursday noon, with the Baerends lecture. On Thursday afternoon and on Friday we will have 3 parallel sessions. At any time, one parallel session will be fully dedicated to behaviour. On Thursday evening, the KNDV has planned a public lecture by Richard Morris (from the famous Morris-maze), and for Friday there will be 2 keynote lectures organized by the KNDV. Since it will be a joint meeting, all Zoology events will be open to NVG participants, and vice versa.

Nieuwe versie Handreiking ‘dierproeven’ met wilde dieren

Er is een nieuwe versie van de handreiking ‘dierproeven met wilde dieren in hun biotoop’ opgesteld. Een eerdere versie is vorig jaar gepubliceerd. Deze nieuwe versie beschrijft de kaders voor dierproeven met wilde dieren in hun biotoop, welke beslismomenten een rol spelen en hoe de wettelijke kaders ingevuld dienen te worden. En is aangeveuld met de specifieke aandachtsvelden.
