    Very interesting; just a pity I have neither the time nor money to attend, really.

    Tim and/or any other Zoochatters, are you planning on attending this event? If so would you mind giving us a review of how it was? Any feedback that you have would be appreciated.

    I normally attend the ZSL Scientific Meetings; this one seems especially interesting so I definitely intend to be there.

    I will supply you with some feedback afterwards.

    As promised, David, a few comments about this meeting; it was a very successful event.

    I normally attend the ZSL Scientific Meetings as they are always extremely interesting and enjoyable events.

    It is a long while since I have seen one so well attended. There were no spare seats in the Lecture Theatre so a crowd of people were standing at the back of the room and late-comers were denied access as the room was full to capacity. It is extremely encouraging that a talk about pangolin conservation generated so much interest and attracted so many people.

    Rather than me try to summarise three talks in a ZooChat post, I provide the link below:-

    Saving pangolins: Earth's most trafficked wild mammals

    If you access this link you should be able to hear recordings of the talks.
