Dear Felid Folks,

              We had hoped that the Felid TAG mid-year meeting planned for July in the Bay area of California was far enough out to not be affected by the Covid19 virus, but with so many zoos closing for an indefinite time we feel travel budgets are going to be the first to go as discretionary spending is cut for budget reasons in so many of our facilities. No sense in having a meeting if very few people are going to be able to make it. We are going to cancel the meeting at this time. If you have already registered for the husbandry course, SSP meetings or the TAG meeting refunds will be issued. Please be patient as it will take some time to issue the refunds.

I want to thank Darrin Minier, from Oakland Zoo and Ashleigh Lutz at the San Francisco Zoo for all their hard work in getting this meeting together. I was looking forward to visiting the Bay Area as I am sure many of you were as well.

Please stay well,


Don Goff
