7th European Zoo Nutrition Conference
The 7th European Zoo Nutrition Conference was hosted by the University of Zurich from January 27-30, 2012. This biennial conference is regularly attended by 100-200 delegates from about 20 countries, representing zoo nutritionists, veterinarians, curators, animal keepers, staff from higher education institutes and private individuals. The conference is a major event for information exchange between individuals involved in zoo animal nutrition in Europe. It was preceded by an optional one-day EAZA Academy workshop on the feeding of herbivores.
The next conference is scheduled for January 2014. Keep checking back here for more details or alternatively consider joining the EAZA Nutrition Group. Membership is open to all individuals who support the aims of the EAZA Nutrition Group or need to know how they can improve nutrition in their zoo. Joining the group is simple; please e-mail Andrea Fidgett (firstname.lastname@example.org) putting 'Join ENG' in the subject line. Afterwards, you will receive a form asking for your contact details and also to indicate your interests and/or expertise.
