The MegaPast2Future project is hosting an engaging one day symposium:

"Megafauna: Learning from the past to build a sustainable future”

on May 3, 2017 in Aarhus, Denmark. This symposium will feature researchers from around the world investigating a range of megafauna topics from paleontology to ecosystem theory and modern conservation. 

Aarhus is ranked a top travel destination by Lonely Planet, The Guardian, and The New York Times, and is an especially exciting place to visit this spring as it is now Europe's Official Capital of Culture. The symposium will take place in the striking Moesgaard Museum (http://www.moesgaardmuseum.dk/en/), which among other fascinating artifacts features aurochs, amazing Bronze Age weapons, and the world’s best preserved bog mummy.
