Through decades of working with and observing different animals, we have gained considerable knowledge of animal behaviour and proper handling procedures. Our intention now is to share this knowledge with the scientific community.
We would like to:
• Contribute towards research about the behaviour of animals ex situ.
• Demonstrate the importance of the ecological role that each one of these species fulfills, for example the dispersion of seeds to encourage reforestation.
• Help with the training of professionals in the fields of biology, ecology and veterinary medicine.
• Encourage academics to come to our Centres to carry out their thesis or internships etc.
