Elephant Managers Association Conference
Hosted by Zoo Miami
The Elephant Managers Association (EMA) announced Zoo Miami as their 39th Annual Conference Host during the 2017 EMA Conference closing ceremonies this October. Since then staff at Zoo Miami and the EMA Board of Directors have begun preliminary planning to produce a premier gathering of leaders among the elephant management community.
EMA partners with leaders in the elephant community to host the annual conference, which allows the exchange of knowledge, communication and networking throughout the elephant management industry. Host facilities are chosen based on their commitment to elephants, their conservation and research efforts, skills and experience, hospitality and willingness to foster growth and development in other programs.
Each conference attracts approximately 200 delegates for two days of formal presentations, a zoo day filled with elephant workshops, and a pre or post conference trip to a nearby elephant facility.
With the help of the EMA board of directors and the conference committee, Zoo Miami will have the opportunity to showcase the features that make it a premier elephant program.

The EMA’s annual conference is the most accessible and affordable opportunity for elephant care professionals thanks to your donations. Delegates will receive cutting edge information focusing on professional elephant management trends and will have the unique opportunity to see firsthand, the methods employed by other established elephant programs. We are taking donations to offset conference costs and items for the silent auction. If you are interested in helping please contact: Matt James at firstname.lastname@example.org.
