Conservation and behavioral research is often glamorized by media outlets. Adventures of field work. Hours of spending time with rare and wonderful creatures. While animal behavior research can have moments that seem…sublime, this blog series is about demystifying the field of conservation and behavior. In this series, we’ll share real stories, experiences and research from scientists that study animal behavior ex-situ and in-situ, insights into conservation (of plants, animals and the environment!), and reflections on how it all mixes together!
Welcome to our brand-new series on conservation and animal behavior: Conservation Chronicles!
This is only the beginning! Join us in Fall 2020 for the launch of our teaching resource collection: ElephAnts! The ElephAnts Collection on RockEDU Online will allow teachers and students to explore ideas related to animal cognition, cooperation and intelligence within a conservation framework!
