Hirers: Zoos

What can we offer you?

Norbert Becker, 2010We understand that zoos have made commitments to certain species. Therefore we can adapt to the species you work with.

One of our plays is on the threat of palm oil on habitats, in South East Asia and West Africa. Our African adaptation highlights the Roloway monkey (Cercopithecus diana roloway). Our Asian play looks at the same threats to the lar gibbon (Hylobates lar). We can adapt these plays for similar threats (such as soya) to South American primates or non-primate species threatened by mono-culture development all over the world.

BMCRif, 2010We also have a new piece that looks at the fate of both primates and reptiles when taken from the wild for the pet trade. The play follows a Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus) and a spur-thighed tortoise (Tortugo graeca graeca) caught in Morocco. This piece can be easily adapted to include South American primates which are most commonly kept as pets in the UK or slow lorises.

We cover various conservation issues and have some pieces in development about slow lorises over time and bonobos and the biases in interpretation of animal behaviour. If you have an issue you think we could tackle just drop us an email and we will be happy to talk to you about it.
