HKZBG to hold "Meet-the-Zookeepers" activity this weekend (with photos)

     The Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens (HKZBG) will hold a "Meet-the-Zookeepers" activity on two consecutive days on April 2 and 3. The event will offer members of the public a chance to meet the zodiac animals in the Year of the Monkey at a close distance and learn more about other animals in the gardens.
     During the event, the gardens' zookeepers will share their experience in taking care of monkeys and other primates as well as animal conservation. Visitors will also have an opportunity to understand more about the habitual behaviour and the interesting stories in the daily lives of different primates, including Bornean orang-utans, buff-cheeked gibbons, emperor tamarins, golden-headed lion tamarins, pygmy marmosets, black and white ruffed lemurs and ring-tailed lemurs.
     The activity is one of the themed programmes of HK SciFest 2016, which allows participants to experience the beauty of nature and arouses the awareness of conserving the valuable natural resources under the theme of "Biodiversity and Conservation".

     Admission is free. Interested parties can assemble at 10am or 2pm at the information counter of the HKZBG's Education and Exhibition Centre. For enquiries, please call 2530 0154 during office hours.
