The task of how to maintain a healthy plant collection in and around animal exhibits in zoos, for the benefit of the animals and guests, is a challenge. This webinar will show the techniques used for selection, installation and maintenance of trees and other plants, for bird, small and large mammal, primate and multi species exhibits. It will give real examples of plants that work, and those that don’t, and techniques you can implement to ensure the best possible integration for both the plants and animals. Although focused on the Southern California climate zones, many of the principles are applicable at zoos nationwide.
