    Hear ye, hear ye! 2017 proved to be a strong year for the wild Vancouver Island marmot (VIM) populations!
     
    Thanks to partners at the Marmot Recovery Foundation (MRF), our conservation team, and Dr. Doug Whiteside, our Senior Veterinarian! We've worked with marmots since 1998, and in 2017:
     
    • 11 conservation-bred VIMs were released on Vancouver Island!
    • 12 wild marmots were translocated in B.C. to various subalpine colonies to increase genetic diversity within the populations.
    • This year’s pups from the Calgary Zoo have adjusted to their new home at the Tony Barrett Mt. Washington Marmot Recovery Centre on Mount Washington B.C and have begun their first hibernation!
     
    Here's to another great year #conservationconversation

    What's that? 2017 was a whooping year for cranes. Our Devonian Wildlife Conservation Centre (DWCC) is Canada’s ONLY facility dedicated to breeding this endangered bird for release into the wild.

    I remember 1988 and the pandas. I got two siamese kittens and named them after the pandas but got a little mixed up at the time and they became Ling Ling and Shing Shing. They were wonderful cats and loved dearly.

    Animal enrichment is an important part of the zoo, adding diversity and challenges to an animal's day, whether it be adding toys to a habitat, or fun ways to discover a meal.

    How do animals move to new homes? Shipments are a team effort and another way the Calgary Zoo participates in world conservation, ensuring that the populations of critical species can grow within accredited zoos.
     
    In 2017 we had 40 shipments, 16 of them international and 24 domestic! Within this total, 27 species were represented from lemurs to chameleons, and from places near and far from Edmonton Valley Zoo to Wroclaw Zoo in Poland. Even more impressive is the number of actual specimens moved –146 including fertile whooping crane eggs! #conservationconversation

    Eating cactus for food and water? If thirsty enough, black-tailed prairie dogs will do just that! Especially when experiencing the extreme drought recorded last summer in Saskatchewan's Grasslands National Park.
     
    Understanding how climate affects their population in is important for future reintroduction of black-footed ferrets, animals that depend on prairie dogs as a source of prey. After surveying vegetation on prairie dog colonies, our Conservation Research team has a greater understanding of which plant species prairie dogs are able to eat - like observing the prairie dogs eating cactus. These insights will help researchers predict population declines, manage vegetation, and help to restore this unique predator-prey system. #conservationconversation

    Visitors can still stop by the outside of their winter building to view these primates leaping and lounging amongst the leaves. A bonus- your visit provides a donation to our lemur conservation efforts in Madagascar. Win/Win! Plan your visit: http://bit.ly/1qYE9ca #yyc #conservationconversation
