Lunch and Learn - Zoo Curator of Behavioral Management
Lunch and Learn with the Zoo's Curator of Animal Management
Spend an hour or so talking with the Curator that oversees the Zoo's extensive animal enrichment and behavioral management programs. This Curator heads up the programs that help ensure the psychological well-being of the Zoo's animals by building trusting relationships between the animals and their keepers and by providing the animals with opportunities to engage in natural behaviors.
