Aug 26 - Aug 30, 2013Pittsburgh, PARegister today for the 2013 International Elephant & Rhino Conservation & Research Symposium.
Presented by the International Elephant Foundation and the International Rhino Foundation. Hosted by the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium.

The pressures on wild populations of elephants and rhinos are increasing at an alarming rate. Human and wildlife conflict and poachers killing elephants and rhinos continues to cause a decrease in the number of these animals in the wild.

However, breakthrough scientific work with Zoo elephants and rhinos is making great strides in protecting the future of the wild populations. We invite elephant and rhino conservationists and researchers from around the world to present conservation projects and research results on field conservation, conflict mitigation, management, health, nutrition, and reproduction at our third joint International Elephant and Rhino Conservation and Research Symposium. Come join us, mingle with your peers from around the world, and share experiences and information.
