Course Description

Lion_YoutothezooOur days spent at the zoo will be a perfect mix of hands-on work and discussions with zoo employees, veterinarians, and para-professionals. We will be doing a fair deal of zookeeping, short coursework (designed to augment our time with the animals), and prepare presentations on the animals we are working with.. When we are done, we will have a huge variety of new skills and experiences to add to our “resume list”. We will also travel to the Cornell University Veterinary College and the Cornell Lab of ornithology (both in Ithaca, NY,). All this education, in a fast paced fun environment, while earning 3 credits!
