Here's what past participants had to say:

“I really enjoyed the hands-on aspect, and the broad experience and background of the instructors. The variety of perspectives that they brought really made the course what it was.”

“The Animal Transport class was essential in helping our zoo prepare for the [shipment] process.  We had several challenges crop up all of which reminded me more than a bit of the [course’s] group project. Thank you for being such an invaluable resource for advice and guidance throughout the yearlong process.”
