---------- Invitation ----------



Dr. S. S. Garbyal, Director General (Forests) and Special Secretory, Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India-Chairperson

India is one of the 17 mega diverse countries in the world, commanding 7-8% of the world's biodiversity including 91,000 species of animals and 45,500 species of plants spread over ten biogeographic regions, many of them endemic to the country. It also has four of the 34 biodiversity hotspots identified so far. However, the country also supports nearly one-fifth of the world's human population and is rapidly seeing a change in its economy from a predominantly agrarian society into a diversified one resulting in increasing pressure on land-use resulting in loss and fragmentation of natural habitats-a primary threat to biodiversity. India has initiated various in situ and ex-situ efforts to conserve and protect its rich and diverse biodiversity.

The Central Zoo Authority (CZA), Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India is delighted to host the 69th Annual Conference of World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) 2014 at New Delhi in 2nd to 6th November, 2014 and this is one of our initiative to conserve the global biodiversity. Hence the theme of this conference is "Biodiversity Is Us". On behalf of the Government of India, I cordially invite you to participate in the 69th Annual Conference of World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) 2014 at New Delhi to share and learn from our combined knowledge to improve the up keeping and welfare of animals in Zoos.
