The 24th Zoo and Aquarium Association Conference, hosted by Wellington Zoo, will be held from May 21 to May 24, 2018 at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, New Zealand. The Conference Committee invites submissions on any topics related to Collaboration: the value of partnerships. The conference aims to explore the opportunities and importance of working in partnership to deliver outcomes for animals, the community and the planet. Much of what we seek to achieve cannot be done alone – we need to work with partners in conservation, sustainability, learning and research to achieve even greater outcomes. You will have the opportunity to hear from leaders across zoos and aquariums and other organisations as they showcase amazing examples of partnerships and potential for future collaborations.
