ABWAK Annual Symposium 2011

ABWAK Annual Symposium 2011
1st Call for Presentations

ABWAK is holding its 2 day Annual Symposium at Port Lympne Wild Animal and Safari Park on the 05th and 06th March 2011. This year the symposium will focus on the modern zoo keeper and the latest techniques being employed in zoos in the UK and Ireland.

This is an opportunity for animal keepers to share their knowledge with other keepers in a friendly environment. We are inviting oral presentations on subjects ranging from new husbandry techniques, enclosure design, innovative environmental enrichment and new ideas in animal diets. Preference will be given to zoo keepers working in the UK and Ireland, but we also encourage students and other zoo professionals as well.

Presentations would normally be no longer than 20 minutes, with time for questions. A brief outline/abstract of your presentation should be submitted and you will be informed if your presentation has been accepted.

The outline/abstract should include:

• Title
• Keywords
• Author
• A/V equipment required
• Summary of presentation (no more than 300 words).

Deadline is 31st October 2010.
Please submit abstracts to Ross Snipp,
