Werribee Open Range Zoo

Gorilla corporate program swings into action

30 May 2012

Werribee Open Range Zoo is going ape over its new gorilla corporate program which will be launched tomorrow (Thursday 31 May).

"Race Around the Zoo—Gorilla Mission" is an exciting new corporate training workshop providing organisations with unique team building experiences.

Team building is becoming increasingly important for many companies and businesses as they realise the enormous power of collaborative work.

The zoo corporate program will provide staff professional development activities and incredible opportunities to compare human and animal behaviours and group dynamics. The activities are founded on Bruce Tuckman's model of team dynamics and team development.

Team participants will scramble around the Gorillas Calling exhibit on the African River Trail as they try to unravel clues to various challenges.

Team work is the only way you can complete this challenge and everyone must work as a team to uncover amazing facts about our new gorillas and the survival challenges of their wild cousins.

Tomorrow teams from two companies will help to launch the program which includes zoo entry and Safari Tour.
