Cango Wildlife Ranch - PAAZA AWARDS WINNERS!

Cango Wildlife Ranch has gratefully accepted not 1 but 2 pretigieous awards from PAAZA (Pan-African Association of Zoos & Aquaria)!
Craig Gouws (Assistant Zoological Manager and Large Carnivore Curator) won the “Keeper Excellence Award”. This award honours the work of an individual animal keeper, who is a permanent employee of an Institutional Member and who has shown exceptional loyalty, interest and passion for the animals in their care.

Craig has been with Cango Wildlife Ranch for almost 20 years, starting as a teenager assisting kids on pony rides, to Tourist Guide and finally seeing him rise to Assistant Zoological Manager. This is commendable and the Ranch is absolutely proud to have him as part of their family.

Secondly, the Tourist Guides won the “Education Award”; an award that honours the work of individual(s) or departments of members who excel in educating the public through relaying conservation awareness, animal and environmental information and the Vision and Mission of the facility in a structured and formal way.
