Pierrot meets Mickey in the USA!

Following about 18 hours of flight time and endless hours in airports Pierrot, in charge of the education programme at Lola, safely landed in Florida to take part in the 20th International Zoo and Aquarium Educators Conference hosted by Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

His presentation, entitled “Educating local communities as part of a reintroduction of bonobos in the DRC” went down very well with several compliments and questions from participants.

And so following a visit to Sea World, Busch Gardens and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, impressed by the different tools for education, uniforms, keepers, etc. he has returned to Lola with plenty of ideas for our own education program and it’s importance throughout the sanctuary!
