SEAZA 2017 and Ark Avilon Philippines warmly invite you to the 25th SEAZA Conference at Montalaban Rizal, Philippines from 31st October to 4th November 2017.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Enriching Lives, Conditioning Behaviours – Shaping The Future For Our Zoos’. As SEAZA institutions continue to develop and progress, animal management and husbandry techniques must also change with the times. Zoos worldwide are transitioning towards the 5 Domains model of animal welfare, and through this conference, we hope to focus our efforts and future directions towards positive changes for the animals in our care. Through the varied and sometimes novel application of enrichment, operant conditioning, training and other husbandry techniques, this conference aims to highlight what SEAZA institutions are doing for our animals, and more importantly, what more we need to accomplish to future-proof our institutions. We not only have the responsibility of providing our animals with the best care possible, but also the responsibility and opportunity to shape the behaviours, opinions and perceptions of the millions of visitors to our institutions annually.
We invite all SEAZA members to submit oral or poster presentations related to this conference’s theme.
We look forward to welcoming you to SEAZA Conference 2017 at Montalban Rizal, Philippines, and to the 7,107 islands that make up the Philippine archipelago. Our cities, beaches, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, cultural destinations and natural wonders beckon; stay longer to truly experience More Fun in the Philippines!
