Fight against palm oil and save Orangutans.


Petition created by: Wetlands International

The Tripa peat swamp forest in Aceh, Indonesia is rapidly being converted into one big palm oil plantation. Its related land clearing and burning are further reducing the forest that is home to the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutan.

Take Action to close Guzoo and re-home its animals!

“Since it opened its gates in 1990, the Guzoo Animal Farm, a private zoo approximately 100 kilometres northeast of Calgary, has been subject to numerous complaints. Despite the issues put foreword, the Alberta Sustainable Resource Department has continued to renew its temporary operating licence. These renewals always come with specific conditions calling for improvements in cages, water, shelter and mental stimulation for the animals. The conditions are often the ones previously set, yet not met, in a previous licensing period.

In a report by wildlife rehabilitator Clio Smeeton and conservation biologist Sian Waters it was said that the Guzoo ‘compares unfavourably to some zoos in the developing world who possess far less resources and have far more serious problems to overcome. It would appear that the Province of Alberta takes less interest in their zoos than many governments in the developing world do in theirs. Many animals at GuZoo are still not having even their basic needs met.’

Furthermore, the Guzoo’s policies show a potential hazard to the public. Lack of hygiene, such as leaving feces or dead animal carcasses (food for carnivores) in cages for several days, causes a contamination concern for human visitors. The Guzoo also allows and encourages visitors to interact with potentially dangerous animals, such as lions, tigers, bears, and lynxes.

With this petition, we ask the Alberta Government to revoke the Guzoo’s temporary operating licence.
