The Event

The conference was organised by the Wildlife Conservation Research Unit (WildCRU) at Oxford University. The mission of the WildCRU is to undertake original research on aspects of fundamental biology relevant to solving practical problems of wildlife conservation and environmental management. The WildCRU has undertaken research on many felid species including puma, wildcat, Pallas’ cat, lion, leopard, tiger, cheetah, Andean cat and jaguar.

The Felid Biology and Conservation conference took place at the Oxford University Natural History Museum and in the Martin Wood Complex at the Physics Department, amidst the inspiring landscape of Oxford colleges and parks.

The Organisers were delighted to be able to invite all delegates to a Welcome Event on Monday 17th September at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Oxford University Museum of Natural History is a spectacular Grade 1 Listed building and one of the finest examples of neo-Gothic architecture. The museum houses Oxford University’s collection of zoological, entomological and geological collections, much of which delegates will be able to view during the evening.
