From the Niagara Falls Review:
Safari Niagara will be welcoming some unexpected guests this summer.
Following June’s devastating floods in Calgary, the Alberta city’s zoo put out a call to registered members of Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums — a nonprofit organization promoting the welfare of animals — to help temporarily relocate 34 animals while the grounds are repaired.
The Stevensville-based zoo answered quickly and said Monday they will be receiving five Goeldi’s monkeys, four Amazon parrots and two white-handed gibbons, one named Tunku who has lived at the Calgary Zoo for a few decades.
From the Toronto Star:
Marineland must “thoroughly update” its water quality protocols to ensure it has a healthy environment for marine mammals in the wake of a Star investigation.
In an interim report Wednesday, the Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums said studies of water quality logs and animal health records “raise questions” about how effectively the park’s water quality systems are working in three pools.
The report said records revealed several instances in which water quality did not meet industry standards. Such lapses had an “impact on the wellbeing of the animals in the pools in question.”
CAZA said it “expects to see a solution to maintain water quality in the long term,” and added that Marineland has agreed to an external evaluation of its water management system.
