Did you know we have a full time staff of animal caregivers for all the fish, mammals, birds, reptiles, and invertebrates? We met with mammal and bird caregiver, Laly to ask a few questions... Q: Where did you go to school? A: I earned my Bachelor’s degree in comparative psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi and am currently working on my Master’s degree in environmental management at the University of Houston- Clear Lake. Q: What is your favorite part about your job? A: I love the pure joy and excitement an animal gets when they figure out a new behavior we have been working on. Q: What is the most important part of your job? A: I would say that the most important part of my job is facilitating the ability for the everyday person to develop a connection with an animal they may never have had the opportunity to see up close otherwise. I feel this connection is the driving factor behind so many efforts to protect and conserve our environment and the animals we share it with. Q: What is your favorite behavior you have trained? A: My first favorite behavior is a color discrimination behavior with Wednesday, one of our green wing macaws, where we use sign language to tell Wednesday what color of toys we want him retrieve. My second favorite behavior is one you will see in our show this summer. If the host of the show forgets a line, Gretchen, one of our rats will bring them a cue card on stage. Q: If you could tell Facebook one thing, what would it be? A: This planet is completely and utterly interconnected. Every effort you make to protect your favorite animal ends up protecting all the animals in that same habitat.
