About This Project
The role of facilitation in sparking curiosity and conservation intentions during up-close animal encounters
Many zoos offer opportunities for visitors to have up-close encounters with ambassador animals. These encounters have the potential to increase interest in these animals and hopefully inspire visitors to take action to protect animals in the wild. We will study how interactions with ambassador animals at the Bronx Zoo affects visitors’ interest, learning, and conservation intentions.
