Throwback Episode – Animal Training

It’s a new year. What better time to look forward and reflect on the past? In honor of completing 30 episodes of Off Exhibit podcasts we’re taking a look back at one of our more popular topics and revisiting a discussion that happened exactly one year ago at the start of the last new year. We really enjoyed talking training with Animal Training Coordinator Julie Grove. It’s a subject that continues to be a major part of all our talks so now’s your chance to learn even more about it. What exactly is involved in animal training and why is it such an important part of the care of wildlife in a Zoo setting? We turned to the Zoo’s own expert for answers and for an in-depth discussion of the benefits of training programs.
