The workshop is primarily intended for those that work in EAZA and affiliated institutions or are directly related to small carnivore husbandry, research and conservation.

The workshop will be a mix of presentations from keepers, TAG members and other professionals about everything from TAG activities, how to get involved with small carnivore conservation, husbandry, training, enrichment etc. The focus of the workshop is on the TAG species so not small canids/felids, however abstracts about these species are also welcome.

Registrate here to attend the Small Carnivore Workshop

We hope with this workshop to bring together as many small carnivore professionals as possible and in that way enhance their welfare in captivity and small carnivore conservation efforts.
