We are delighted to send you the first ever EAZA Academy prospectus (see link below) detailing the training opportunities available over the next few months. From breeding programme management to collection planning, from planning new education programmes to conservation psychology, we hope to deliver training across a spectrum of disciplines; this prospectus represents the first fruits of the generous donation from Fondation Segré, which enabled EAZA to hire a dedicated Training Officer, Myfanwy Griffiths.
This prospectus will be a developing, living document, over time featuring increasing numbers of training opportunities. Most editions of the prospectus, including this first edition, will not be published in print. Therefore we would be grateful if you could ensure that the attached document is forwarded to as many of your staff and interested colleagues as possible.
I would like to draw special attention to the first ever EAZA course on zoo management, to be taught by peers with both Masters of Business Administration qualifications and collectively decades of practical management experience in zoos and beyond. The Introduction to Zoo and Aquarium Management will take place in Amsterdam from 30 August to 1 September. If you have staff in your facility that would benefit from this three-day course then please do consider sending them to sunny Amsterdam to learn more.
You will note that two of the listed courses take place in venues outside of the EAZA Executive Office and we would be interested to hear from zoos and aquariums from around the EAZA membership that would be able to host training courses. In addition if you feel you have teaching skills that would benefit the Academy and would like to find out more about teaching on courses then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope you enjoy reading the prospectus and we look forward to seeing you on EAZA Academy training courses in the near future.
Dr Lesley Dickie
Executive Director, EAZA
