ABWAK is holding its 2 day Annual Symposium at Bristol Zoological Gardens on
the 03rd and 04th March 2012. The theme of the symposium is professional
development and showcasing the work of zoo keepers in big and small
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 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:
. A/V equipment required
. Summary of presentation (no more than 300 words).
Deadline is 30th November 2011.
