Lafarge makes donation to Canadian zoo

By |  May 20, 2013

Lafarge Canada Inc. has partnered with the Calgary Zoo and the zoo’s Centre for Conservation Research, donating cash and a gift in kind of aggregates, concrete and cement, as well as employee volunteer hours. Lafarge aims to help sustain the ecosystems where we work and live.

“Lafarge has a long history of environmental leadership and has connected specifically with the conservation research center to further our efforts,” says Rene Thibault, president and CEO of Lafarge Western Canada. “We have supported the zoo for over 20 years and find their research work critical to biodiversity.”

The support from Lafarge will help back field research projects such as black-tailed prairie dogs and black-footed ferrets, whooping crane incubation studies at the zoo’s Devonian Wildlife Conservation Centre and international community-based conservation work in collaboration with the zoo’s conservation outreach team.
