The Zoo Landscape Conference is a forum that aims to help create naturalistic landscapes in zoos. This Conference shall conduct research about incorporating plants, soil, and water into zoos, exchange information from Japan and abroad, and disseminate the results to the world, and thereby aspire to contribute to the realization of a society that coexists with nature. We look forward to the participation of those who are interested.
