The 1st World Seabird Conference, led by the Pacific Seabird Group and an International Steering Committee of 26 other professional seabird and research organisations from around the world, was held in Victoria, BC, Canada in September 2010. Over 950 participants (including 850 registered conference attendees) from over 40 countries gathered together to comprehensively address the global issues and data needs for this diverse group of birds, most of which inhabit multiple countries and waters within their own ranges.
