GHCAAZK is proud to partner with Hose2Habitat to host an enrichment workshop at the Houston Zoo this year in November.
What is Hose2Habitat?
Hose2Habitat, headquartered in Maryland, is the only nonprofit organization in the world whose mission is to provide and enhance habitat enrichment for animals in zoos, sanctuaries, and wildlife rehabilitation centers through the donation of recycled and other materials, workshops for keepers, and other programs and projects. They are 100% volunteer run and all materials and services are free to zoos, sanctuaries, wildlife rehabilitation centers, and their staff. WOW!
How we got started.
GHCAAZK's Katie Buckley-Jones is the 2016 Professional Development Chair. She brought the idea to the board and, of course, we all said YES!
Easy enough, right?
So far, so good.
Our goal is to open up registration on August 15.
I am sure that the workshop spots will fill quickly so check back often to stay updated!
