Another incredible result! Zookeepers banding together for a great cause. This was indeed our “biggest year ever!” We did it!

 

We will be sending LWIRO Primate Rehabilitation Centre care of SOS Primates a cheque for $15,000 and investing the rest into developing new fantastic professional development opportunities.

 

Thank you and well done to the keepers of Australasia.

2017 Animal Training Conference Photo

ASZK Animal Training Workshop

 

Our newly developed Animal Training Community delivered their very first Animal Training Workshop. This was a huge success, selling out very fast. All participants gained a great deal of knowledge and skills thanks to our brilliant trainers Elly Neumann, Steve Dalleywater and Bianca Papadopolous. The training community are currently working through some feedback from course participants and will be planning the next workshop. Stay tuned!
