Description: 

The project asks, “What are the real outcomes of the zoo or aquarium enterprise, both as a visitor destination and as a public voice in public media?” and has the following three aims:

  1. To understand how visitor goals and behavior impact learning.
  2. To understand how the conservation education agenda of most Z/As interlaces with those goals.
  3. To understand how the public situates the voice of Z/As in society.
