Behavioral Science at the Dallas Zoo (9th - 12th)
Dallas Zoo is home to over 2,000 species that represent animals from all over the world. In the wild, they confront each other, their opponents and nature. At the zoo, zoologists work with animals around the clock to make sure their basic needs are met. Learn how our zoologists apply operant conditioning to make sure our animals are healthy and safe in their habitat and with each other.
