Event description

Description

It was a passion for animals sparked at a young age that led Clement Lanthier to start a career in veterinary medicine and animal conservation. Now, as CEO of the Calgary Zoo and member of the Canadian Committee of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (CC IUCN), Lanthier oversees a wide range of projects; from the birth of new animals to establishing sustainable conservation programs across the globe.

Lanthier’s became passionate about animals when he was a youngster visiting his family’s vegetable farm. While most children grow out of the animal-crazy stage, he got stuck there and never looked back.

Lanthier is proud to work for a zoo with many success stories. But being the head of a large institution means dealing with the tough stuff too.

In 2013, the Calgary Zoo was rocked by record breaking flood waters. “Mother Nature decided differently the day of the flood...that was a massive challenge,” Lanthier says.

Lanthier says the Calgary Zoo will remain dedicated to the happiness of both animals and patrons.
