A key goal of ours is to contribute to building conservation and husbandry knowledge and skills throughout Laos.

This includes supporting important educational initiatives such as field skills training for conservationists as well as working with the Lao government in an advisory capacity, to grow and expand local skills in conservation.

Our largest capacity building project is here at our site, through our Lao Zoo project. We have high standards at LCTW and are proud of our extensive training and skills sharing program for local staff. We provide training and retraining in EAZA and AZA standards for animal husbandry, leading to international knowledge transfer and improving job skills and long term employability.

We know training, knowledge sharing, and staff support is important to improving the long term capacity of the Lao conservation community, and we are proud of our role in building this!
