A two-day seminar in November was scheduled, following the 26th South East Asian Zoos Association (SEAZA) Conference in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Workshops for zoo directors and employees were built around discussions, led by invited speakers from government agencies, on the Wildlife Act, Animal Welfare Act, international zoo accreditation, animal welfare, and ethics in zoos. Through these, the administration hoped to improve zoo standards and practices.
The organization also scheduled a set of workshops for next year, focusing on animal welfare and ex-situ (off-site) conservation. “[This] would hopefully translate to improved welfare conditions of animals in PHILZOOS member institutions,” according to the organization’s statement.
