Ten students recently returned from South Africa where they took part in the Exotic Animal Behavior and Welfare study abroad. A second group is currently traveling the same itinerary. Resident directors for the trips were Ms. Kelly George and Dr. Steve Moeller, respectively.
The first trip included experiences at the Pretoria Zoo and Wildlife Biological Resource Centre, Mikon Poultry Facility, Elephant Sanctuary, Kruger National Park, Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, Blyde River Canyon, and Timbivati Private Reserve, as well as a game capture simulation via helicopter.
