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.
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.
