ABWAK Lemur Keepers’ Workshop

Colchester Zoo - Saturday 18 June 2022

Calling all lemur keepers!  ABWAK invite you to our workshop to share knowledge with fellow keepers, make new contacts and talk about all things lemur.  Contact the workshop organiser if you would like to give a presentation on any aspect of lemur husbandry at your collection - registration is FREE for speakers.  Open to ABWAK members and non-members also welcome.

Priority booking will be given to lemur keepers - please contact the organiser before trying to book if you do not work with lemurs but would like to attend.

Join us at Colchester Zoo to experience a full day of talks, practical activities, peer to peer discussion and behind the scene tours.  Some of the topics covered will be:

  • Body Condition Scoring
  • Caring for Older Lemurs
  • Browse
  • Monitoring Estrous Cycles
  • Training
  • Aye-aye housing study
  • Enrichment

Proceeds from the workshop will be going to Helpsimus and there will also be a raffle to raise funds for this amazing charity.

Tickets £20 members; £40 non-members and include lunch and refreshments.

Bookings will not be confirmed unless online registration is completed and full payment has been made.  Places are limited.
