JUNE 25 – 28th, 2004

                Calgary, Alberta, Canada

The Rocky Mountain Gorilla Workshop will be held at Glenmore Inn and Convention Centre.  The workshop begins on Friday, June 25, 2004 with registration and an icebreaker. The following three days will be filled with round‑table forums, guest speakers and plenty of time for keepers to exchange ideas and husbandry experience. 

The workshop will not only be geared toward those working directly with gorillas but will include topics for students, researchers, docents and gorilla enthusiasts!  Possible topics may include: general gorilla husbandry and the need for bachelor groups, environmental and behavioural enrichment and training, veterinary and dietary concerns, conservation, education and the ever increasing concern about the bushmeat crisis. 

Calgary Zoo will be hosting “Zoo Day” on Monday, June 28th.   There will be an opportunity for delegates to visit our new Destination Africa Pavillion and meet the nine members of our gorilla troop.
