- ATBC annual meeting to take place in Bali

June 20, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News can reveal that people who are keen to reduce their impact on the environment during their stay in accommodation in Kuta should head to next month's annual meeting of the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC).

The ATBC conference will take place on the paradise island of Bali between July 19th and 23rd, having been held in Germany last year and in Suriname the year before.

Anyone who is staying in accommodation in Kuta between these dates can expect to share their hotels with some of the world's leading biological scientists, with between 300 and 400 of them expected to turn up to the event.

Discussions will take place at the meeting related to the theme of "Tropical Diversity: Facing the Food and Energy Crisis and Climate Change", the organisers have revealed.

This means that the likes of biodiversity utilisation, maritime resources, climate change, carbon-based forestry and the Papuan ecosystem are all set to be among the topics given an airing at the five-day conference.

The team behind the talks would certainly have been hard-pushed to find a more attractive setting for the event - the island of Bali is home to some of the world's most picturesque beaches.

Of these, the sandy stretch at Kuta is one of the most popular and has become a real haven for surfers and sunseekers in recent times.
