Great news! Our online Conference Merch Store for the upcoming AOS & BC 2022 Ornithological Conference is now OPEN! Order all your AOS & BC 2022 merchandise online for pick-up in San Juan, Puerto Rico, 27 June to 1 July!
We have a great variety of items for sale, including gorgeous conference t-shirts, fun hats, stylish buffs, cool stickers, and a beautiful poster that all feature the gorgeous illustrations of talented Cuban artist Arnaldo Toledo. These make great souvenirs from the conference and mementos of your time in Puerto Rico that you can enjoy for years to come. We also have West Indies and Puerto Rico bird field guides available, and the authors of both books will be on hand to sign your copies! These items and many others, such as local coffee, make unique gifts for your family and friends.

We know that some of our members are unable to attend the conference and would love to purchase some of the amazing items available on the site. Perhaps those of you that are attending would be willing to help us in getting these items to persons living in/near your area? Your assistance, if possible, will be of tremendous help to us since all sales will benefit Caribbean bird conservation initiatives from outreach to capacity building of Caribbean nationals and research. As a token of our appreciation to anyone that assists with carrying items for friends and colleagues back home, you may choose to receive either a free Puerto Rican Tody buff or Puerto Rican Endemic Bird sticker set (2 pages). If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
Important: At present, we cannot offer shipping and only registered attendees will be able to pick up items during the conference. All merchandise items purchased on this site are to be collected during the conference in Puerto Rico. If you are unable to attend the conference, please make arrangements with a friend or colleague, who will be attending, to pick-up your item/s. We will also do our best to connect you with people from your area who will be in attendance at the conference – if you are interested in this option, please email Tahira Carter at email@example.com or Lisa Sorenson firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please also note that you, or the person collecting your item/s on your behalf, must be registered for the conference. Walk-ins cannot be accommodated at the Puerto Rico Convention Center. We will need to share either your email address or mobile number, or both, so you can make arrangements with the person/s to collect their items once you’re back at home. We understand that you may be worried about luggage space but the items are not bulky or heavy. We suggest that you set a limit on the number of items you can accommodate and let us know. Alternatively, if you know someone on your island is attending the conference, contact them directly and ask if they will bring back your items!
All items will also be available for purchase during the conference, however, quantities are limited, so be sure to shop early for the best selection and prices!
The AOS & BC 2022 conference will take place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from 27 June to 1 July, 2022. The theme is “On the Wings of Recovery: Resilience and Action.” All are welcome!
