Save the Date!

July 30-August 2, 2024

We had an incredibly successful 19th International Elephant Conservation and Research Symposium in Chiang Mai last year. Since we had received more presentations than we could accommodate, we believe that many global elephant conservationists and researchers would be interested in presenting their work in 2024 at our virtual symposium instead of waiting until our next in-person event (which will be in 2025).

Stay tuned for more details!
