Wellington Zoo is proud to be the host of IZE 2023, our first in-person conference for five years! The conference is being held at Harbourside Events Centre, with an afternoon and ice breakers at Wellington Zoo.
Our conference theme is Me tiaki,kia ora! We must look after our environment, so all things will flourish. It is up to us collectively to make a difference for animals and the wild places they call home.
After the last couple of years of upheaval, we have a great opportunity to come together, celebrate and set the stage for the future of Zoo and Aquarium conservation education. Our conference identity includes a koru shape, often found in Māori art as a symbol of creation, based on the fern frond. The circular shape shows the idea of perpetual movement and the inward coil suggests a return to the point of origin. This is a symbol of how life changes and stays the same.
Please note, all abstracts have been reviewed. If you submitted an abstract and have not been notified, please check your Oxford Abstracts account.
