Animalia of Kahlo: Parrot talk with Auckland Zoo


event Details

When science and art collide! Come and learn about an amazing animal that inspired Frida Kahlo’s artwork.  

Kat Greenham joins us at the Gallery to demonstrate how Auckland Zoo cares for parrots using the five domains of animal welfare model. We will then cross live to the Zoo to meet a South American parrot and learn about their personalities and intelligence.  

Programmed as part of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: Art and Life in Modern Mexico, this entertaining presentation will leave you wondering: How can we best care for animals in our own homes? 

Kat Greenham is a facilitator in the Conservation Learning Team at Auckland Zoo. She is passionate about making wildlife accessible to all and connecting communities to nature.
