Date: 15 to 19 October 2017
Venue: National Zoological Gardens of South Africa, Tshwane
WAZA has chosen the theme, 'Our Time Is Now', to emphasise the pivotal role zoos and aquariums play in the global fight to protect wildlife and wild spaces.
Our focus will be on the important contribution that zoos and aquariums make to society. The world’s best zoos and aquariums are modern, innovative, impactful, inspiring and pertinent to current challenges – both ecological and social. We will examine how WAZA zoos and aquariums are acting as leaders in their communities, how WAZA members are working collaboratively across continents to develop best practice and most importantly how we are evidencing our impact both on the natural world and on society. We will explore the unique contribution that zoos and aquariums can make and suggest areas of focus most relevant to the current times.
