Defenders of Wildlife Carnivores Conference

GVI are presenting this week at the Defenders of Wildlife annual Carniovores Conference in Denver, Colorado.

Country Director, David Aneurin Jones is braving the cold of the Mile High City to present our latest piece on work on our jaguar predation of marine turtles study.

Today was the first day of the conference, with meet-and-greet sessions and registration being held, together with a behind the scenes tour of Denver Zoo. Several talks were given by the Zoo's staff, focusing on the carnivores in their collection and how the Zoo is involved in breeding and conservation programs around the world.

Here are just a few highlights from the tour:

Stay tuned over the week for updates from the conference
