As part of Advancements in Veterinary Sciences for Wildlife Conservation (ADVETCON) conference series, we at the Laboratory for the Conservation of Endangered Species (LaCONES), CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad, extend a warm welcome and cordially invite you all to take part in the International e-conference on "Recent Advances In Reproductive Technologies In Wildlife Conservation" from 11th to 13th of November 2021. The aim of this conference is to highlight the current status of reproductive technologies in wildlife conservation and management. Due to anthropocene, multiple species have come under severe threat of extinction. The efforts to prevent the extinction of these species require intensive conservation methods. Modern reproductive technologies can contribute better conservation and management of these endangered species, both in captive and free ranging. The conference is organised for students, wildlife biologists, veterinarians, conservationists, scientists, forest and zoo mangers for understanding the current status of reproductive technologies in wildlife conservation.

The Laboratory for the Conservation of Endangered Species (LaCONES), is a part of the national laboratory of CSIR-Centre for Cellular & Molecular Biology (CCMB), dedicated to wildlife research and conservation in India. For the last two decades, LaCONES has made significant contributions in wildlife research such as wildlife forensics, assisted reproduction, reproductive and stress physiology, conservation breeding, evolutionary and population genetics and has also established Wildlife Genetic Resource Bank (
