CROCODILE ZOO > V Congreso Internacional Tropical Animal Production

V Congreso Internacional Tropical Animal Production



In the days from 16. 11 to 20. 11. 2015 We attended the fifth Congreso Internacional Tropical Animal Production at the Palacio de Convenciones de la Habana, where we presented our successful breeding of the critically endangered crocodile species. We would like to thank to the Secretary of the Cuban Embassy in Prague, Mr. Gustavo Suarez Angel Cordero for a recommendation of our participation.

 

As part of the path to the congress we visited the world famous farm -  Criadero de Cocodrilos en Zapata, where they have conservation projects for  Cuban crocodile. We could discuss with the workers in the farm and we could share our experience of breeding of crocodiles. We acquainted  with the intentions of saving of this critically endangered species. Workers and scientists are doing research of genetics and morphology types Cuban crocodiles on the farm.

Our Cuban colleagues had thesis from Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia in the Czech Budejovice, one's disposal before our arrival. This work was for them very interested and the scientific team could  to compare with the latest findings from the analysis of DNA processed by crocodiles in Cuba. The results of these tests will be decisive for our future cooperation zoo with conservation projects of critically endangered crocodile in Cuba.

 

During the excursion to the National Park Cienaga de Zapata, we visited place where Cuban crocodile is found in the wild and from our guides receive information about its current status. Cuban crocodile is strictly protected, and its status in the wild will rise in the future likely reintroduction of captive breeding. We hope that in this process we will actively involved.

Kongres probíhal v Paláci dr convencione za účasti předních kubánkých vědeckých institucí a odborníků....   Mnoho nových informací jsme získali u stánků institucí zabývajících se ochranou biodiverzity Kuby   Nejvíce nás zaujala přednáška o genetickém výzkumu krokodýlů kubánských

U diskuze nad naším posterem se probírala i možná spolupráce naší zoo s diplomanty z Kuby   Krokodýli kubánští na farmě  na Zapatě.   S vedoucími pracovníky krokodýlí farmy na Zapatě jsme si prohlédli i přírodní lokality výskytu krokodýlů kubánských
