An exciting venue

The Congress Venue is located in Teramo, Abruzzo. With a third of its territory set aside as Park, the region not only holds a cultural and civil record for protection of the environment, but also stands as the biggest nature area in Europe: the real green heart of the Mediterranean.

It would be difficult to underestimate the national and international importance of the Abruzzo Parks in the protection of the environment and of biodiversity, bearing in mind that 75% of all Europe’s flora and fauna species are represented in this region! The sheer range of Abruzzo’s natural habitats (marine, river and lake, woods, mountain, high altitude) means that today, more than ever, the region is a sort of wonderful biolaboratory that protects nature and ecosystems.

Some post-Seminar tours are being made available to participants in Maiella National Park, to find the balance between learning and well-being.


Visit the official website of the seminar and register to this free opportunity to extend your knowledge on conservation medicine and wildlife health in exciting Abruzzo.
