Crisis Management and Emergency Response in Zoos

28-29th January 2020

Chessington World of Adventures Resort, Leatherhead Road, Chessington, Surrey, KT9 2NE.

With a few notable exceptions, the area of crisis management in zoos has historically been under discussed. Although individual collections located in areas peculiarly prone to catastrophic events may have specialist protocols for these circumstances, the topic in general in the broader industry is not widely considered. As collections come under more intense public and legislative scrutiny our diligence needs to develop in parallel. Where risks can be foreseen, formal contingency planning should be the natural progression. Crisis Management and Emergency Response in Zoos will help fill the void in the conversations being held on these increasingly important areas of zoo operation. Topics covered during the event will include flooding, fire, dangerous animal escape, large animal rescue, notifiable disease outbreak, incident command and strategic planning. With perspectives from those directly involved in such events within the zoo industry and from those involved with managing emergency situations, this two-day conference will be of value to all those in zoo management positions including health-and-safety and public relations officers, curators, managers owners and directors.

Large Animal Rescue Workshop

30th January 2020

BIAZA and ABWAK members: £60, non-members £80

Chessington World of Adventures Resort, Leatherhead Road, Chessington, Surrey, KT9 2NE.

Any practicing animal manager or zoo keeper will be familiar with situations where animals have become caught or stuck; situations that are unforeseen and for which there is no contingency plan. This 1 day workshop run by 3SFire, a branch of the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Authority and hosted by Chessington World of Adventures Resort seeks to prepare keepers for those unexpected situations by outlining the principles of large animal rescue and the coordination of stock during non-routine scenarios. Using class-room based theory combined with practical demonstrations, it will equip zoo personnel with the skills and knowledge to work safely as members of an animal rescue team, able to operate within the inner cordon and perform standard animal rescue techniques utilising veterinary-approved animal rescue methods and equipment. This course is ideal for keepers, section supervisors, curators and anyone with practical involvement in the management of zoo animals as well as zoo health-and-safety personnel, zoo veterinarians and vet nurses.
