The Detroit Zoological Society’s Center for Zoo and Aquarium Animal Welfare and Ethics is offering an immersive five-day workshop for professionals working with and around captive animals. The workshop is designed to help participants better understand animals’ perspectives and experiences, address the challenges captivity imposes on animal welfare, and develop the skills necessary to assess and improve overall well-being. Participants will learn how to develop and implement animal welfare programs that meet the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' accreditation standards. The workshop is comprised of lectures, discussions, group projects and hands-on exercises at the Detroit Zoo.
