In its inaugural year, the Tails & Cocktails Speaker Series provides a one-of-a-kind experience. Guests will hear experts from the Zoo and the Northeast Ohio community discussing a variety of topics impacting health and welfare, wildlife conservation and science education.
What does it take to reverse the trend of declining giraffe populations in the wild? Hear from an expert in the field, a local conservation champion, as well as Cleveland staff members who helped relocate a herd of giraffe to more secure lands in Africa.
Speakers: Dr. Julian Fennessy, Co-Founder and Co-Director of Giraffe Conservation Foundation; Tom Leiden, Cleveland Zoological Society director and President of GCF-USA; Andi Kornak, Deputy Executive Director, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo; enjoy a chance to feed the Zoo’s herd from the Ben Gogolick Giraffe Encounter and hear more from Cleveland keepers and veterinary team members about giraffe welfare in Cleveland and abroad.
Thank you to the Leiden Conservation Foundation for its generous support of this event.
