COMPASSIONATE CONSERVATION 2015

DATE: 28-31 July 2015

VENUE: Allard Hall Forum, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada

 

This international conference will be a multidisciplinary event aiming to address animal welfare issues in conservation, examine potential synergies, look for practical outcomes and promote further dialogue between these disciplines; with a view to incorporating the welfare of individual animals alongside other factors in conservation decision making and practice. It follows the highly successful inaugural symposium at the University of Oxford in 2010.

The conference is sponsored and coordinated by the Born Free Foundation and the Centre for Compassionate Conservation at the University of Technology, Sydney; and hosted by the Animal Welfare Program at the University of British Columbia.
