Laura Mayo has been working with primates for 25 years and at Zoo Atlanta for the past 19 years. She works in every capacity from keeper to her current position as Assistant Curator. While Laura has had the opportunity to work with all of the Great Apes, she has had the fortunate opportunity to be able to focus on orangutans. Laura has been working tirelessly to improve the lives of the 12 orangutans at Zoo Atlanta. Last year at the 2008 Orangutan SSP Husbandry Workshop, Laura presented the ground breaking work she is doing with AI. Laura will also be presenting at the 2009 Orangutan SSP Husbandry Workshop and giving training demonstrations.
