Description

BIAZA's Field Programmes Committee will be holding their second BIAZA Conservation Conference at Yorkshire Wildlife Park; 'Stepping up for Conservation'. 

Presentations and workshops from experienced conservationists within our community will guide delegates through the 'Assess, Plan, Action' conservation project development process, highlighting a range of successful case studies and providing an opportunity for discussion and troubleshooting as well as networking with a number of potential project partners. This event will be especially useful to those collections beginning to develop their field programme activities.

If you’d like to be considered then please contact Matthew Zaremba on m.zaremba@yorkshirewildlifepark.com for the abstract submission form, once completed please email it to s.wilson@chesterzoo.org
