Long Boi: The World's Tallest Mallard?

A York Celebrity

AMLaP 2022 may not have an adorable sea otter mascot, but York has its own local animal celebrity: an exceptionally tall Mallard/Indian Runner Duck hybrid known as Long Boi.

Launched to internet fame as "the tallest duck to have ever lived" (admittedly, a somewhat dubious claim), Long Boi's become the unofficial mascot for the University of York, and has graciously agreed to lend his image to our conference.

We've got an AMLaP 2022 merch shop featuring Long Boi in the works, but in the meantime you can follow along with our feathered friend at his instagram account (@longboiyork).
