The delegates were selected by the Chinese Association of Zoological Gardens as being influential in their zoos and motivated to improve husbandry and welfare standards for their animals.

The workshop included talks by our own curators, vets, science team, education and animal teams, providing an overview of our own animal management practices, zoo education and science.

We also talked to the delegates about exciting new developments in the zoo such as the Islands project.

The delegates’ trip is sponsored by Animals Asia Foundation, who will also support them in making any changes to their own zoo’s practices.

We’re very proud to have been asked to host this workshop and indeed of all the work we have done with Animals Asia to support our colleagues in CAZG in the uphill battle to improve husbandry, welfare and education in their member zoos.
