PAWS 2016 International Captive Wildlife Conference

San Andreas, CA…The PAWS 2016 International Captive Wildlife Conference will take place on Friday and Saturday, November 11-12, 2016. This premier global summit addresses the confinement and use of exotic and wild animals – with a special focus on elephants, bears and big cats – and features speakers on the next wave of sanctuaries for elephants, orcas and nonhuman primates. You can expect to hear from leading voices in the fields of scientific research, sanctuary care, conservation, law, and animal welfare, policy and care.


This year’s conference will be held in San Andreas, California, home to PAWS’ ARK 2000 sanctuary where we care for elephants, lion, black leopard, tigers and bears. On Sunday morning, November 13, Conference attendees will have the opportunity to join PAWS President and Cofounder Ed Stewart on a tour of the 2,300-acre natural habitat sanctuary.

PAWS has been presenting outstanding conferences since 1992, attracting attendees from around the world. Our aim is to educate, stimulate critical discussion and promote action to protect and improve the welfare of captive wildlife.
