Asia for Animals to meet in Sarawak this October
Sarawak’s Kuching city will play host to the Asia for Animals (AfA) Borneo Conference this October, an event that is expected to attract some 500 delegates from around the world.
Described as the largest and most represented animal welfare conference in Asia, the event will head to Malaysia for the first time. It will take place from October 6 to 9 at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching.
Organised by the Sarawak Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA), the conference is expected to be attended by speakers and delegates who are responsible for animal welfare and wildlife management.
SSPCA had chosen Partnerships Breed Success as the theme for this year’s conference and the main objective of the conference is to engage, network, exchange ideas and build lasting collaborations with those working on animal welfare and wildlife management.
The organising chairperson for AfA Conference and SSPCA chairperson, Rebecca D’Cruz, said: “This conference will be a gathering for the global fraternity of animal welfare practitioners and it will be a venue to share your knowledge and experiences to ensure a safe and secure future for the animals in Borneo.”
The conference will be divided into various plenary, symposia and workshop sessions.
