Accepting Additional Poster Submissions

We will now be accepting a limited number of posters that will be displayed during the midday breaks between oral presentation sessions. These posters will be static poster boards (48”x36”), which will be different than the interactive ePoster evening events we have planned. Please if you’re interested in submitted an abstract (no more than 250 words) for review, send it either via email to reintroductionconference@lpzoo.org or through our online portal by 1 September 2018. We will notify everyone on 15 September 2018.


Additional Scholarship Funding

Thanks to the generous support of the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) some additional scholarship funding has been made available. In order to qualify for these funds, the applicant must meet the criteria listed on the scholarship application as well as conducting work with a zoo and/or an aquarium.
