Zoològic de Barcelona, Spain) we wish to extend a cordial invitation to you to participate
International Conference on Diseases of Zoo and Wild Animals 2015.
AIM OF THE CONFERENCE
The goal of this conference is to bring together wildlife scientists and veterinarians from all over the world interested in diseases of free-ranging and captive animals, and to present the latest advances and stimulate future research in this topic. To this aim, the selected plenary talks and workshops will cover a diverse range of fascinating topics such as infectious diseases, surgery, handling and treatment methods and conservation, among many others. We are expecting a stimulating programme with many interesting scientific presentations supplemented by an entertaining, yet informative, evening programme.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at the conference.
