Active Environments and Shape of Enrichment are proud to present the fourth Training and Enrichment Workshop for Zoo Animals hosted once again by the Oakland Zoo, Oakland California. This unique five-day workshop is designed for keepers, managers, supervisors, curators, and veterinarians working with all species of animals held in zoos.
The Workshop will present an array of topics relating to the behavioral management approach to caring for captive animals, with focus on environmental enrichment, positive reinforcement training techniques, and the problem-solving process. Workshop format includes lecture, discussion, small group projects, demonstrations, and multiple hands-on training and enrichment opportunities with Oakland Zoo's diverse collection. Skills taught are directly related to enhancing staff's ability to manage captive animal behavior, improve animal welfare, and enhance the overall care and management of captive animals. The Workshop format is designed to maximize the value for each participant and as much as possible to address specific situations, needs, problems,
and objectives. Be prepared to interact, share, and participate to make the experience as useful and relevant to you as possible.
