11th-19th November 2013
For the past eleven years (founded Nov. 2003) Elephant Business (Escondido, USA) and Hagenbecks Tierpark (Hamburg, Germany) offer annually a unique comprehensive course on elephant management.
The curriculum covers the majority aspects of elephant management and elephant care, from husbandry and health care, to transport, training, reproduction and conservation. Due to the large interest we have decided to offer this course again in November 2013. This is the eleventh year of the school and each year it has been highly successful, attracting many elephant professionals from all walks of life.
The First European Elephant Management School is the first one of its kind and the lectures are international experts in their field.
The First European Elephant Management School is a practical orientated course on different elephant management tactics.
Protected contact as well as free contact management techniques and procedures will be trained. Hagenbecks Tierpark currently houses ten Asian elephants of all age groups and with a high training standard.
Important elephant management procedures will be taught on and with the animal (e.g. foot trimming, health care, transport, management techniques).
The School is held in a nine days session. The course is recommended for all people responsible for elephants in a zoo environment. i.e.:
keepers, zoo curator, veterinarians, and other professionals with an interest in elephant care, conservation and management. However, a basic knowledge on elephant management is required.
Please note, that the number of participants is limited to 15 students!
We have already received a couple of registrations for this year, so don't leave it too late. Detailed information on the school, its topics and its lecturers are available
