Thank you

The international meeting, organised by WildCRU and sponsored by the Panthera Foundation, took place at Oxford University from 17th - 20th September 2007, with workshops taking place on the 21st and 22nd September. Over 300 delegates attended with over 150 oral and poster presentations happening over 3 days. Many of the worlds leading authorities on felid biology and conservation attended the meeting, along with researchers from all but 2 continents of the globe.


The Organising Committee would like to thank all those who attended and presented for helping make this meeting a fantastic success. Please continue to visit this website for update on outcomes and post-conference information as it becomes available.


Due to the overwhelming demand for t-shirts and other items we are hoping to reopen the shop in the near future so those that were unable to purchase at the conference don't miss out!


We will also have news on the book edited by David Macdonald and Andrew Loveridge on felid biology and conservation. This book will be a companion volume to the much acclaimed ‘Biology and Conservation of Wild Canids’ (Oxford University Press, 2004).
