Conservation connection: Training to save wildlife

Ken Ramirez
Presentation given at the 2016 Conference

The science and application of learning theory is growing in use and popularity. From training the household pet to caring for the largest exotic animal in the zoo, applied behavior analysis has led to better behaved pets and to improved animal care for animals all over the world. Creative trainers are always finding new ways to apply behavioral science; in the last several decades trainers have used advanced training skills to give back to nature and contribute to a wide range of conservation initiatives. Conservation training is an exciting new direction for experienced trainers to put their skills to use. Ken will share his training experiences with several unique conservation projects as well as those initiated by other skilled trainers.
