Our apologies to everyone, but due to unexpected complications, this year’s TEWZA has moved to December 5-9, 2011.

Active Environments and Shape of Enrichment are proud to present the fifth 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 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 to address your 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.

The registration fee is $900 and includes the following:

• 6 nights stay in the Workshop hotel (double occupancy)**

• All workshop materials

• All breakfasts, lunches and snacks during the workshop

• Icebreaker, dinner, and closing banquet (3 dinners)
