CWF has been a proud supporter of Calgary Zoo and its Centre for Conservation research since 2008. We are continually impressed by the programming, innovation and dedication of this dedicated team.
It’s inspiring to welcome new initiatives such as ILLUMINASIA which celebrate our deep connections to wildlife and habitat that are part of our rich cultural heritages. The festival launches Sept. 17 with Chinese lanterns which will turn a spotlight on some of the zoo’s animals while showcasing culturally symbolic animals such as the crane and iconic Chinese symbols like the Phoenix. After the Chinese celebrations (Sept 17-27) the zoo will be transformed again with a Japanese theme (Oct 1-11) followed by a celebration of India (Oct 15-25).
The Calgary Zoo will also play host to a CWF Wild Family Nature Club training session on September 25th and 26th. Registration for this activity is now open at: : https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wild-family-nature-clubs-tickets-18278701087. Wild Family Nature Clubs provide parents and their children with social activities and tools to get them outside playing together in nature and connects them to other families doing the same thing. This popular program offers a variety of on-resources including a multilingual tool kit. Find out about activities taking place in the Calgary area on our events calendar here.
We hope you have a wild and wonderful fall.
