The Beaver State Podcast Episode 92: Conservation psychology with Dr. Kathayoon Khalil

April 29, 2022

Zoos and aquariums are often the first places kids encounter some of the critters they will ultimately be fascinated with the rest of their lives. Dr. Kathayoon Khalil is a conservation psychologist who studies these interactions and works to improve the relationship that humans have towards nature through education. Of course many zoos and aquariums also play a quiet, behind-the-scenes role in conservation by raising and releasing threatened and endangered species back into their habitats. We talked to Dr. Khalil about her work in these spaces.
