Greenville Zoo Environmental Enrichment Scholarship

 

Environmental enrichment is a key component of animal management, care, and welfare in modern zoological institutions.  ZCOG and the Greenville Zoo in Greenville, South Carolina have therefore partnered to create the Greenville Zoo Environmental Enrichment Scholarship, which provides Latin American zoo and aquarium professionals with an opportunity to attend the Association of Zoos & Aquarium's (AZA) Environmental Enrichment in Zoos and Aquariums professional training course. While attending the course, scholarship recipients receive the information and skills necessary to enrich animal environments and advance environmental enrichment in zoos and aquariums.
