    Why are burrowing owls disappearing?
     
    One of many mysteries of the declining population of the endangered burrowing owl is what happens to them during migration- the birds sometimes do not return after they migrate.
     
    Our burrowing owl head-starting program recently reported that our first burrowing owl, equipped with a small satellite transmitter, started migrating! Transmissions have been received from one of our female owls showing that she is now in Wyoming- a positive sign. We will keep you updated on their winter journeys! #conservationconversation

    Really disappointed in this event... I thought it would be something similar to “zoo lights” ie: outdoors, where you’re able to walk around and see some of the animals and experience the zoo. Instead, we were confided to a too small for the amount of people attending room... given a small sample of beer, a dinner and then watched a few older Germanesque-bands. Would’ve been more worth the money to just simply go to a German pub for a meal and a few beers especially since the tickets imply your DRINKS not small drink sample are included in the 65$ you end up paying for a sausage and a pretzel. The majority of people left after an hour with us. Not worth the price. So so disappointed.

    Water we doing? Finding ways to improve upon our sustainability practices is always front of mind at the Calgary Zoo. Recently, Green Team Council Members audited water usage around the park and discovered that certain water hoses were continuously running during the summer months to keep the bears, muskox and wolves cool in the Canadian Wilds.
     
    The hoses were using potable drinking water—which is a more costly for the zoo and resource heavy to treat. The solution was to tie the hoses into a non-potable water source—which minimizes the use of energy needed to supply these animals with the water they need. #conservationconversation

    Did you know that our African Violet display within the ENMAX Conservatory was created with pumice stone? This reclaimed pumice was saved after the demolition of the old conservatory because of its value as a product for the new conservatory and other interior exhibits.
     
    Not only is the stone a recycled product used in the gardens, but the violets that decorate the garden are from areas of China where they are becoming endangered due to habitat destruction and trade in traditional medicinal herbs. Small actions can lead to big changes to protect wild places! #conservationconversation

He is currently in Ghana at the Wechiau Hippo Sanctuary, and will make his way to Avu Lagoon to learn more and speak with important partners about the sitatunga conservation work.
     
    On the final leg, he'll make his way to Madagascar to speak with our newly forged partners at the lemur nurseries and to award the first credits of our green technology program. Can't wait to follow along with his trip! #conservationconversation
