The Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) and the Born Free Foundation are delighted to announce an International Symposium on animal welfare in conservation practice, to be held at Oxford. The Symposium will bring together scientists and practitioners from a range of disciplines to debate animal welfare issues in conservation, examine potential synergies, look for practical outcomes and promote a dialogue between these two disciplines that are often perceived as mutually exclusive.
The Symposium will be organized around the following themes:
•Animal welfare in field conservation
•Captive animal welfare and conservation
•Conservation consequences of wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and release
•International trade in live wild animals
The Symposium will be of interest to academics and graduates in conservation biology, animal welfare and animal ethics, as well as conservation and animal welfare organisations and practitioners.
Further details and online registration will shortly be available on this website
