OSU, Columbus Zoo team up for class

OSU’s School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) (part of CFAES) and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium recently teamed up to offer Zoo Science and Management, a winter quarter class that met at the zoo. The focus: Learning about, and seeing firsthand, jobs at zoos. SENR wildlife professor Stan Gehrt and Danielle Ross, the zoo’s education director and a SENR alumnus (M.S., Environmental Education, Communication, and Interpretation, ’01) planned and organized it. A dozen of the zoo’s experts taught it. The class, with 25 students, was full. There was a wait list from last year to get in. Said Ross: “It’s been a great partnership.”
