First Page

The Annual Congress was hosted by the Western Cape Province at the Athene Conference Centre in Club Mykonos, Langebaan. The final programme of abstracts is now available to download.

The Annual Congress was hosted by the Western Cape Province at Club Mykonos in Langebaan. The Greek-themed resort is on the shores of the Langebaan Lagoon about 120kms north of Cape Town. The town of Langebaan was originally a whaling station but has been transformed into a idyllic seaside destination for holidaymakers. The Lagoon is part of the Cape West Coast Biosphere Reserve, is a RAMSAR site, temporary home to migratory birds from as far afield as Russia and nursery to a population of Southern Right whales. The Society had a successful Congress where everyone could stay together for easy networking and experience the magic of the West Coast!
