Description:

Our speaker following dinner is Dr. Eric Miller, Senior Vice President of Zoological Operations and Director of The Wildcare Institute for The St. Louis Zoo. The title of Dr. Miller’s talk is “The St. Louis Zoo’s The Wildcare Institute – Zoos working together to rescue, save, and restore endangered species and their natural habitats.” This is the inspiring and fascinating story of the creative and collaborative political, social, and biological work being conducted by the Zoo and its partners to conserve endangered species and their habitats, in 12 “conservation centers” both nationally and internationally.

Dr. Miller is a graduate of the Ohio State University (BS, DVM), and in 1981 came to the Saint Louis Zoo and the University of Missouri Columbia where he completed a residency in Zoo Animal Medicine. He has served as the president of American College of Zoological Medicine (ACZM), and the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians (AAZV). In 2003 he received the AAZV’s Dolensek Award for “exceptional contributions to the conservation, care and understanding of zoo and free-ranging wildlife.” Dr. Miller has served on the Board of the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA). He has authored/co-authored over 60 scientific articles and textbook chapters, and with Dr. Murray Fowler he has served as co-editor of the 4th, 5th and 6th editions of Zoo and Wild Animal Medicine. He has worked on biomedical surveys of captive South China tigers and giant pandas, and free-ranging Galapagos avifauna.
