My guest today is Dr. Gabriela Mastromonaco, the
Curator of Reproductive Programs and Research at the Toronto Zoo. I
sit down with Gaby to find out more about the “fertility clinic” of
a number of species at the Zoo to help protect the genetic
diversity of each species. During our chat, Gaby tells me about the
Wood Bison Program to help repopulate the Bison population in
Saskatchewan. The Zoo’s artificial insemination program has created
at least 10 Bison that are kept at the Zoo.
You are going to learn about how the Zoo plays an
important role in protecting genetic diversity and Species At Risk
in Canada and Internationally.
