The Zoo and Wildlife Health Conference
Share |

Each year EAZWV joins forces with the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research (IZW) to hold an international conference on Zoo and Wildlife Health.

As well as an opportunity to present new research and learn about the latest advances in zoo and wildlife health, welfare, conservation and management, participants have the opportunity to take part in practical workshops, round table discussions and 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.

Information on our next conference, our last conference and a list of previous conferences can be found below. Proceedings for past conferences are being digitized and will be uploaded to the member area shortly.
