    ALPZA stands for Latinamerican Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and it has been making an annual congress the same way AZA, WAZA, etc. does. The 2014 congress was last week in Lima and I had the privilage to attend, it was really my first zoo congress (hopefully the first of many) and found it incredibly interesting, there were presentations lead by the director of WAZA, San Diego Zoo Global, as well as many other latinamerican zoos. The next congress will be held in Cordoba (Argentina) and the 2016 congress will be in Colombia (Yes, it´s even in my city).

    I just wanted to know if there is any zoochatter that has ever attended one of this congress or if they were willing to do someday.
