During your Zoo Expedition, we will investigate conservation and behavior through direct observation at Woodland Park Zoo to explore key questions about how and why species act the way they do in different situations. This course provides a foundation for understanding ethological research methods and conservation issues that can be applied and adapted to increase understanding about animal welfare and primate conservation in educational and community settings. Zoo Expeditions also provides a knowledge base for understanding zoo-based and field-based behavior research methods and how these methods contribute to conservation solutions.
This course typically is held on four (4) Saturdays in the fall (August through early December) from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. each day along with course work online. Registration opens June 1.
