The pressures on wild populations of elephants and rhinos are increasing at an alarming rate. Poachers are killing elephants and rhinos at levels never seen before. Wildlife habitat continues to disappear while human-wildlife conflict increases. Break-through scientific investigation intdisease, nutrition, behavior and reproduction of elephants and rhinos in human care, ambassadors for their species, is contributing to the future survival of wild populations.
We invite elephant and rhino conservationists and researchers from around the world to present conservation projects and research results on field conservation, conflict mitigation, management, health, diseasenutrition, reproduction and behavior at our third joint International Elephant and Rhino Conservation and Research Symposium.
Come join us, meet your peers from around the world, share your experiences and best practices, make new friends and develop new professional associations.
