10th Annual Meeting of Friends of Soqotra will be held in Bern, Switzerland on September 23 – 25, 2011. The meeting is opened to non-members and all nationalities and disciplines

Ten years ago, Friends of Soqotra was established, a non-profit charity organization initiated and maintained by a number of volunteers, for the promotion of the sustainable use and conservation of the natural and cultural environment of the Soqotra Archipelago. The Friends of Soqotra Annual Meeting is one of the organization’s main activities, providing a platform where ideas can be exchanged. It enhances communication between groups and individuals involved or interested in the island.
