The Jane Goodall Act will revolutionize animal
welfare in institutions by revealing how accredited zoos, like the
Toronto Zoo, prioritize animal welfare and conservation of their
animals compared to roadside zoos and private owners of exotic
animals such as big cats (tigers, lions, etc.), primates, and other
animals that require trained zookeepers, veterinarians, and
researchers that can care for the animals properly.
I am joined by Dolf DeJong (CEO of the Toronto Zoo),
Grant Furniss (CEO of the Assiniboine Park & Zoo), Dr. Clement
Lanthier (CEO of the Calgary Zoo), and Marty McKendry (Senior
Advisor to Senator Klyne) to discuss why the Jane Goodall Act is
important for animal welfare and conservation.
