Articles

training cockatoos books on river otters animal advocacy animal behaviorist wild animal behavior On the following pages are a number of articles I have written that are related to interaction with animals or related subjects. I will add additional articles from time to time. A number of these articles have previously been published in "ANIMAL KEEPERS' FORUM," the journal of the American Association of Zoo Keepers, Inc. This publication goes to most of the zoo keepers around the country. I sincerely hope that some of the concepts discussed in these articles will have a positive impact on the readers' attitude and respect for the dignity and character of most of the wild and domestic animals that inhabit the world.

Several of the articles refer to the International Exotic Feline Sanctuary. I will give more information about that facility in the section on this website about "Organizations That I Endorse." I volunteer my services at the Sanctuary and spend three days a week helping make life better for the approximately 68 large felines that have their permanent home there. It is a wonderful facility that stays true to its mission of providing the best quality of life possible in captivity for the resident felines. I am proud to be a part of the work done there rehabilitating and giving a good home to exotic cats that have been abandoned, abused, and confiscated.
