1st International Old World Primate and Prosimian Symposium

1st International Old World Primate and Prosimian Symposium

After the success of this year’s New World Primate Symposium at Twycross Zoo which was attended by other 100 Keepers, Students and Zoo Professions from all over the world, we are happy to inform you that Twycross Zoo is organising another of these useful and rewarding symposiums. The next symposium would be based on the fascinating groups of old world primates and prosimians, many of which have become very popular in animal collections around the world.

The symposium would cover the same types of topics as the last symposium on New World Primates with additional talks that would be relevant to species specific animals such as the Colobinae and nocturnal species like the Aye-aye. This two day symposium would be aimed at keepers who work with these groups of primates and also people who are studying to become primate keepers in the future. One of the main successes of this year’s symposium was that it gave keepers the opportunity to network with other keepers and exchange invaluable ideas and insights. The presentations were of a very high standard and very well received.

To make this symposium assessable to all we have tried to keep registration cost low as we can so that everyone can be involved, so for the whole two days which includes all talks and workshops as well as lunches and coffee’s will only cost £50 and this year we are offering an ABWAK early bird deal for £45 for the whole two days (Professional Members only, offer ends 31st Jan 2012)

A flyer has been attached to this email for your reference to this amazing conference - please feel free to print off or forward to likeminded others that would love to attend or present at our conference. Also find attached a registration form and abstract submission form. (NOT please email address below)

Places are limited so please register now to avoid disappointment.
