Join Denver Zoo to celebrate the conservation biology programs we support in Africa. The evening will highlight Denver Zoo staff working in the field, animal demonstrations, and special presentations. Denver Zoo is honored to recognize 2012 Conservation Award winner for Dr. Rosie Woodroffe for her cutting edge work on addressing human-wildlife conflict, especially with respect to African wild dogs in Africa. Laurie Marker will also share her work which focuses on cheetah conservation. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the conservation biology work happening in Africa. While the event is free and open to the public, space is limited and we ask that you register in advance.
Denver Zoo’s field conservationists from Africa will be available to discuss their important work and answer questions.
