Hosted by Zagreb Zoo, Croatia (19-23 May, 2020)

The furtherance of wildlife conservation has become the predominant objective of EAZA and its members. It's now clear that the zoo and aquarium community's role in conservation extends far beyond helping to save endangered species through ex situ breeding programmes. Through their links with in situ projects many members of EAZA are active in the conservation of habitats and entire ecosystems. The EAZA Conservation Forum is a biennial event bringing together over 100 representatives of zoos and aquariums, conservation organisations and in situ conservation projects for three days of workshops, presentations and other activities.

From 19 – 23 May 2020, the EAZA Conservation Forum will be hosted by Zagreb Zoo in Croatia.
