A Look at the Dublin Zoo's Gorilla and Asian Elephant Program

Join Gerry Creighton, Zoo Operations Manager at the Dublin Zoo, for a look into a dynamic gorilla and Asian elephant program.

Creighton’s presentation will discuss the role the modern Zoo can play in the conservation of the western lowland gorilla, one of the most threatened ape species.

Using photos and video, Creighton will also cover the events leading to three natural in-herd elephant births within the space of three months.

Learn key aspects of elephant and gorilla welfare, husbandry, enrichment and facility design, with specific reference to the development of Dublin Zoo’s groundbreaking programs.
