Hosted by Marwell Wildlife, United Kingdom, 18-20 January 2019
The 10th European Zoo Nutrition Conference will be hosted by Marwell Zoo in the United Kingdom, January 17-20, 2019. The conference is a joint organisation by the EAZA Nutrition Group and Marwell Wildlife. Due to space availability most of the conference activities will take place at the Marwell Hotel, which is adjacent to the zoo. The biennial European Zoo Nutrition Conference is usually attended by around 130 delegates from about 20 countries, representing zoo nutritionists, veterinarians, curators, animal keepers, staff and students from higher education institutes and private individuals. The conference is a major event for information exchange between individuals involved in zoo animal nutrition in Europe. The conference will be preceded by an optional one-day EAZA Academy workshop which will take place on the 17th of January.
Marwell Zoo is a large zoo spanning over 140 acres with around 130 species of animals. Due to its location and space availability the zoo has historically always specialized in hoofstock species and still keeps herds of various species in its sizable paddocks. Furthermore there are a number of species of large carnivore, birds and small primates. The recently opened tropical house also provides a home for a variety of bird species as well as reptiles, amphibians and mammals. The zoo is open 363 days of the year, and in winter the opening hours to the public are between 10am and 4pm. Of course for those attending the workshop special arrangements will be made outside of opening hours where needed. The zoo is located between Winchester and Southampton in the south of the United Kingdom.
