Join us for an immersive, exciting, eye-opening two-day journey into the world of parrot enrichment! Enrichment to improve welfare and incorporate change through science is our specialty. Discover the art and science of creating a mentally and physically stimulating environment that promotes the well-being of parrots of all sizes and skill levels. Bring us your challenges!
Over the course of this workshop, we will delve into a diverse range of topics, including understanding the cognitive and behavioral needs of parrots, designing dynamic and engaging enclosures, aviaries, and play gyms, designing enrichment for behavior change, shaping complexities, and how enrichment can be used to empower parrots and their relationship with us. Through a blend of interactive lectures, hands-on demonstrations, and collaborative activities, you’ll gain new insights and creative techniques to elevate the quality of life for the parrot(s) in your care. Whether you’re a parrot caretaker, enthusiast, or professional, prepare to fill your brain with creativity and our creative approaches. You’ll be able to see how the parrots, and other birds at The Animal Behavior Center interact with the enrichment we provide.
This two-day workshop includes lunch and enrichment items you put together to take home. The Animal Behavior Center doors will open each day for attendees at 8:30 AM. The workshop will begin at 9 and last until 4 each day.
