Crikey, Steve was Right! Changing Zoo Visitor Attitudes and Behavior

Is it the case that “to know me is to love me,” or is it true that “familiarity breeds contempt?”  Does allowing zoo visitors to directly interact with animals affect their attitudes and behaviors with regard to those animals, and if so, how?  In this talk, I’ll present the results of a study my students and I conducted at the Southwick’s Zoo last summer to try to answer these questions.

Professor Morgan’s talk is scheduled for Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 12:30 p.m. in President’s Dining Room.
