For many thousands of people, Zoos and the iconic species they contain, are deeply embedded in their formative, childhood encounters with animals. Perhaps one of the most celebrated and more recently controversial species for Zoos to hold are Elephants and during this fascinating presentation, we will have the rare opportunity to talk to the worlds leading authority on the sustainable care of this amazing species in captivity.
Alan Roocroft has spent a lifetime working with Elephants both directly with 25 years within Elephant holding collections and then latterly, 30 years as a globally renowned consultant. He has experience spanning 125 different institutions and collections in a breath taking 28 countries.
During this 1.5 hour live ‘Zoom’ video conference, David Southard from Wild Arena, will chat to Alan about his lifelong journey with Elephants and we hope to hear some fascination stories from this extraordinary career. With historical pictures to illustrate the conversation, this is a talk that should appeal to anyone with an interest in human interaction with animals, especially in a Zoo environment.
If you want a glimpse into the world of Zoos in the 21st Century and how iconic species like Elephants are leading the way in the evolution of care that is likely to inform our opinion of all species in captivity, this is a conversation not to miss.
