The IZW organises regularly international conferences where scientists from all over Europe and elsewhere meet and present the latest research developments in wildlife behaviour, ecology, evolution, genetics and medicine within an interdisciplinary context. In particular, the IZW runs four series of large congresses, the International Berlin Bat Meeting, the Meeting on Evidence-based Conservation in Bats, the Zoo and Wildlife Health Conference (until 2019) and the Wildlife Research and Conservation conference. All four series aim to advance the purpose of conservation and conservation medicine for threatened wildlife species, run a forum where zoo and wildlife veterinarians, behavioural ecologists and physiologists and conservation area representatives and zoo curators can meet, and provide an opportunity to strengthen the ties between scientists from Western Europe with those from Central and Eastern Europe. In addition to these four series of conferences, the IZW also organises special one-off events.
