Zoos Moving Forward with Nature: Nurturing the Wild, Saving Our Future


The 29th Annual and 2nd Virtual SEAZA Conference will be held from 8 to 11 November 2021 via Zoom. With the theme, “Zoos Moving Forward with Nature: Nurturing the Wild, Saving Our Future”, SEAZA aims to bring together the Southeast Asian zoo and aquarium community, the academe, industry, and the public to discuss how zoos continue to evolve into centers of conservation, education, and welfare especially during the CoViD-19 pandemic.

This year's Conference is hosted by the Philippine Zoos and Aquariums Association (PHILZOOS).
