Great Ape Cardiac Health Workshop

The Great Ape Cardiac Health Workshop, hosted by Cameron Park Zoo, is a free 1-day workshop.  The same workshop is held twice to allow for the most participants to attend.  Each day is limited to 20 participants to allow for ample time to ask questions and participate in the hand-on portions of the workshop.

During the workshop we will focus on voluntary non-anesthetized blood draws, arm and finger blood pressure methods, EKG and echocardiograms. There will be hands-on training, orangutan training demonstrations, and presentations.

This workshop is put on in partnership with the Great Ape Heart Project and endorsed by the Orangutan Species Survival Plan.
