Student research at Zoo Atlanta

Each year, animals at Zoo Atlanta provide insights for groups of undergraduate students from local colleges and universities. These opportunities allow the students to get real-time experience with the challenges of designing and implementing non-invasive biological research. Some of these student research efforts have been published in peer-reviewed academic journals.
