From Good Care to Great Welfare Workshop

October 5 - 9, 2020

The Detroit Zoological Society’s Center for Zoo Animal Welfare offers an immersive five-day workshop each year 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.  The workshop is comprised of lectures, discussions, group projects and hands-on exercises in the zoo.

The early registration fee of $350 includes all lunches, snacks and two dinners. Early registration ends August 17, 2020, at which time the fee will increase to $400. There are also limited registration scholarships available.
