3rd International Seadragon Husbandry Symposium

We are excited to announce the Third International Seadragon Husbandry Symposium will be held at Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia, June 5-6, 2018. This Symposium hopes to join biologists, nutritionists, veterinarians, field researchers and vendors to review the latest advances in seadragon care, conservation and public display. Featured presentations and discussions will focus on habitat design, life support, water quality, nutrition, reproduction, health, acquisition, and long-term wild population conservation. The Symposium is a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues on these topics and share experiences from the field and in the exhibit gallery. Seadragon experts work all over the globe and Atlanta, with its large airport and support from Georgia Aquarium, provides a convenient venue at which to gather for this event. We offer opportunities for sponsors to share and showcase through tiered giving as well as Events sponsorships. Proceeds will directly support the ability of the Symposium host to provide this forum and to support on-going in-situ and ex-situ seadragon research and conservation.
