The Zoo and Wildlife Health Conference
Share |



Dear Zoo and Wildlife Health Conference Delegate,

After careful consideration of the risks and alternatives, we have come to the decision to that holding the 2020 Zoo and Wildlife Conference as a physical meeting would be unwise and we are therefore cancelling our Emmen 2020 meeting.

Despite these difficult times, we all still need to engage in continuing education to provide high standards of professional care to our wildlife patients. The EAZWV team is therefore exploring options to deliver as much of the scientific program as possible virtually over the summer months. We will be working on this with the Scientific Program Committee and the authors  and will get back to you with our proposal as soon as we can.

We will also start work on refunding your registrations. Each refund will need to be done manually so, as you can imagine, it may take a few weeks to get through them all. We will endeavour to refund online payments to the credit / debit card used.  We will be contacting those who have paid by bank transfer individualy so as to get your bank details for the refund.

Thank you for your patience and understanding 


Our annual conference provides an opportunity to present new research and learn about the latest advances in zoo and wildlife health, welfare, conservation and management. Participants also have the opportunity to take part in practical workshops, round table discussions and to network with colleagues.

Our conference is attended by wildlife researchers, managers and veterinarians from all over the world. It is usually held in May each year and hosted by a European zoo or wildlife institute.
