How do we consider the full range of behaviors, experiences, and abilities of our animal residents? Cheryl Meehan and Brian Greco with AWARE Institute presented their work to understand and provide for the full spectrum of animal thriving. In our recent ECHO Digital topic, we discussed elements of exhibit design that either help or hinder animal thriving in professional care.
What would it look like to design for animal thriving?
The experience of animals goes beyond what exists within the exhibit.
Creating a space of curiosity and learning opportunities for the animals.
Philosophy and method of animal care should align with the space.
Investing in the quality of life for animals is essential to a great guest experience?
Next month’s ECHO Digital is on May 14, 3:30 EST.
