    About This Project

    Many zoos offer opportunities to have up-close encounters with ambassador animals. These experiences have the potential to increase participants’ interest in animals, but also inspire them to take action to protect these animals in the wild. This study will use observations and interviews to explore how program facilitation, from open-ended participant-driven approaches to directed curriculum-driven approaches, can affect participants’ interest, learning, and conservation intentions.
