The pressures on wild populations of elephants are increasing at an alarming rate. Wildlife habitat continues to shrink while human-elephant conflict increases. Conservationists and researchers around the world strive to protect the remaining animals and habitat.
We invite global elephant conservationists and researchers to present conservation projects and research outcomes, new technologies in field conservation and conflict mitigation, studies in disease, reproduction and behavior, and other issues that impact the long-term survival of African savannah, African forest, and Asian elephants.
We will also provide information for non-IEF affiliated post Symposium travel opportunities including the Surin Elephant Festival (November 17-19) and visits to elephant facilities in the region.
