BIOL 111 - Animal Husbandry

(0.5-1)
Students enrolled in the Zoo and Wildlife Biology program will be provided the opportunity to work with a variety of live animals in the Malone Zoo collection. Through this interaction, students will obtain the training and skills needed to manage animals in captive conditions. Training will include all dimensions of animal care including proper cleaning procedures, nutrition and diet preparations, health and weight management, restraint and handling techniques, training, enrichment, and worker safety. In addition, students will assimilate natural history fundamentals into daily husbandry for the ultimate purpose of learning conservation management and education.

Offered each semester.
Grading is Credit/No Credit.
Credit will be awarded at 0.5 credits per 30 hours (1 shift/week) worked. Hours counted toward work study cannot be counted toward credit. Students may enroll in multiple sections each semester and may repeat the course for credit each semester.
