Have you ever wondered what your pet was thinking, or whether or not the fly on the wall could feel emotions like we do? We’re taking animal care to a whole new level as we study APEC animals’ species-specific behavior. We’ll practice techniques that help us better connect to birds, reptiles, and small mammals, and give their lives more purpose and joy. Learn more about animal needs that go beyond water, food, and a clean shelter. Help care for our animals and all their quirks by learning how to train them, engage them, pamper them, and supplement their diets. Participate in a fun craft that will be used for the enrichment of one of our many animal ambassadors! Limited to 8 participants.

**Prerequisite Requirement: Participation in a prior Animal Care Trainee program is a must in order to qualify for Advanced Animal Care Trainee (Please do not register if you have not participated in Animal Care Trainee; contact Zachary at Ext. 204 for further assistance).
