Course Description

This lecture/discussion class examines the ethical, welfare, health, conservation, and policy issues surrounding the keeping of wildlife in captivity. Particular attention is paid to wildlife in zoos and aquariums, but wild animals in sanctuaries, backyards, research facilities, circuses, and other forms of entertainment also receive attention. The course features outside speakers, faculty- and student-run discussions, and weekend field trips to zoos and other facilities.
