2017 Felid TAG Conference


Felid TAG Conference

Each year, the Felid TAG holds a midyear meeting that brings together felid managers, keepers, scientists, educators and other related professionals to focus on one special topic that allows in-depth interaction and discussion of specific felid-related issues. The meeting includes presentations as well as working groups and a day visit to the host institution. Reports from past meetings can be downloaded here.
