G.O. Program Orientation

February 7, 2015 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Want to get to know the animals better? Join the G.O. Program! You’ll have the opportunity to observe the animals and collect valuable data. No experience needed.

Observers use a list of described behaviors to record an animal’s activity for a set period of time, usually 20 minutes per individual. The data collected helps zookeepers to better understand how the animals are spending their day and how they are utilizing their exhibit. This information is then used by keepers to further enhance animal care. It also creates baseline data for future studies which may be performed by zookeepers or students. Future opportunities in this growing program include data entry, statistics, studies, species specific ethogram development, and a call out list to assist keepers in observing introductions, births, and more.

Open Today from 10am to 5pm
