With the growing uncertainty regarding international travel due to the Covid-19 situation, as well as the inability of our delegates from several countries to join us, the Symposium organisers from WRS and WW have made the decision to postpone the Symposium.
Invited delegates will be receiving an email to reconfirm attendance. Please check here periodically as we will provide regular updates for your information.
Thanks for your understanding and sincerely hope to see you in August.
Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS), in collaboration with Wild Welfare (WW), is pleased to invite you or your representative to the first Pan-Asian Animal Welfare Symposium, hosted by Singapore Zoo.
Focusing on key themes around wildlife under human care, the Symposium will bring together up to 100 representatives from zoos and aquariums, rescue centers, animal welfare NGOs, and zoological organisations for three and a half days of exciting presentations, discussions, and break-out focus group sessions.
This innovative animal welfare forum is designed to focus exclusively on the Pan-Asian region and serve as a networking platform to share expert knowledge and collective experiences in a positive environment to achieve the following objectives:
The discussions and focus group work conducted during the Symposium will be summarised on the final day and incorporated into a Statement of Commitment to be presented to all participants. This will mark the beginning of an ongoing collaborative effort to address the challenges of meeting best practice animal welfare standards throughout the region.
