Congress on Wildlife Parasites,KNP, September 2017

Welcome Message

Dear Parasitology Colleagues

I am thrilled to invite you to the 3rd International Congress on Parasites of Wildlife which will take place at Skukuza in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

After the success of this event in 2014, and due to the demand and enthusiasm of the previous delegates, we decided to hold the congress every three years. For such a congress, what better venue than the famous Kruger National Park? Apart from interesting presentations about the parasites of the wildlife to stimulate the mind, delegates can relax in the tranquillity of the park and its inhabitants. It will be the perfect opportunity to strengthen existing and form new friendships and collaborations.

As in 2014, the congress will be hosted by the Parasitological Society of Southern Africa (PARSA) and will thus also include the 46th annual meeting of this society. As a society it is our pleasure to host national and international delegates and, together with the local organizing committee, will do all it takes to make this another memorable event.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Skukuza in September 2017.

Susan Dippenaar
