Zoo and Aquarium Conservation

Description: 

Contemporary conservation often involves ex situ (outside of natural environments) efforts in zoo and aquarium facilities to provide opportunities for species to persist until challenges in the wild are remedied.  This course will focus on current topics in zoo and aquarium conservation and management.  Subjects covered include captive breeding and releases, the role of education in zoos, enclosure habitat enhancement, animal behavior, handling and monitoring techniques, and other topics that are important in the conservation of captive wild animals.
