Old World Monkey workshop

We welcome you to the Old World Monkey workshop which will be held in GaiaZOO on 29 June until 1 July 2019. The workshop is primarily intended for those that work with these species  in EAZA and affiliated institutions, in zoos from other regional zoo associations, or are directly related to Old World Monkey research and conservation.

The workshop will be a mix of presentations from keepers, TAG members and other professionals about everything Old World Monkey! The focus of the workshop is on the TAG species, which concerns the family Cercopithecidae.

We hope with this workshop to bring together as many Old World Monkey professionals as possible and in that way enhance their welfare in captivity, aid conservation activities and promote international collaboration.
