Never before have so many conservationists, researchers, veterinary experts, and horse lovers gathered to share new findings, identify priorities and develop funding strategies for saving the wild relatives of the horse, the other odd toed ungulates. What better place to have this conference than in the equestrian epicenter of West Palm Beach (Wellington, FL.) and away from the northern winter weather! More importantly it is a unique opportunity to meet and network with colleagues that will grow into friendships, which lead to collaborative initiatives in order to save some of the most iconic wildlife species on the planet.

The four-day program will include an opening Icebreaker, keynote addresses, conservation science sessions on rhinos, tapirs and wild horses, an equine and wild perissodactyla training/behavior wet lab, and a special VIP visit to Lion Country Safari to meet some white rhinos up close and personal. Near the conclusion of the conference will be a fundraising event with silent and live auction items.

The primary goals of our Symposium and Fundraiser are to:

  1. Raise awareness in the public,  and particularly in the equestrian community concerning the status of wild Perissodactyla species.
  2. Create a bridge between the equestrian community and the zoo and wildlife conservation community, in order to improve the care, medical treatment and conservation of both domestic equids and their endangered wild cousins.
  3. Raise funds to support conservation programs for some of the most endangered species of rhinos and tapirs in the wild.
  4. Provide CE credits for veterinarians and other professionals
