Technology transfer and education are an intrinsic part of every research and conservation program at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo. The scientific staff of the Center for Conservation and Research (CCR) is engaged in a variety of education programs preparing the next generation of conservation leaders.
Programs by the CCR are offered to colleges currently working in conservation, professional staff, graduate and undergraduate students, all in collaboration with universities in Omaha and around the world. These programs can range from focused 10-day tiger immobilization workshops provided to colleagues in Indonesia, Thailand, China and Russia, to more advanced, long-term programs in training, advising and mentoring U.S. and overseas graduate students. In 2005, more than 109 students received training at the Zoo in areas ranging from animal management to research.
You can expand upon the CCR's offerings by visiting the our subsections (Programs, Training and Workshops) to learn more about Omaha's Zoo efforts around the world to help protect and preserve endangered species and train the next generation on the importance of continuing the conservation mission that Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and other parties have begun.
