Good Guadalajara Conference!


August 2013

I was invited as a key note speaker at the “Los Zoológicos del Futuro” symposium celebrating the 25th anniversary of Zoo Guadalajara, 21 to 23 August, in the beautiful tropical Mexican highlands.

I delivered two lectures, El Pasado Y El Futuro De Los Zoológicos ―Una Perspectiva International Integrada and El Futuro de Los Zoologicos en Epocas Cambiantes Los próximos 50, 75 y 100 años. I presented the talks in English with the help of simultaneous translation, but translated the PowerPoint slides into Spanish.

Other noted speakers included Detroit Zoo Director Ron Kagen, Canisius College Anthrozoo Program head Professor Michael Noonan and Metro Santiago (Chile) Zoo Director Mauricio Fabry. There were about one hundred attendees from countries including Mexico, Central America, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, USA and Qatar. Special thanks to Sra. Maria “Meru” Eugenia Martinez Arizmendi for organizing everything so excellently!
