The 2019 Special Species Symposium was a wonderful success.  Thank you so much to all of our speakers, volunteers, participants, and sponsors.  Cornell will be hosting its next Special Species Symposium in 2021.  We hope to see you there.

The Special Species Symposium is a weekend-long event bringing together students and professionals interested in veterinary medicine and animal management as it relates to non-traditional species, including zoo animals, wildlife, exotics, aquatics, and pocket pets. Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine host the event in alternating years.  The 2019 symposium will be hosted by Cornell University and take place at the veterinary school in Ithaca, New York from the evening of Friday March 29th through Sunday, March 31st, 2019. Lectures will start at 8:00 AM on Saturday.

The Zoo and Wildlife Society is currently in the process of scheduling the lectures and laboratories for this event. We will have a lecture schedule posted as soon as possible.

Registration is CLOSED. We hope to see you at Special Species Symposium next year!
