Ever wonder what it is like to train animals? Now you can find out! Follow around ABI trainers as an Animal Trainer for a Day and participate in our training programs. Our guest trainers learn how to prepare diets, feed the animals, and assist with regularly scheduled training sessions. Whether it’s with one of our farm animals or a bird of prey, each animal receives one on one care and positive reinforcement training. Birds occupy a valuable niche in the wild and we discuss how their role at ABI, the behaviors we train, and the enrichment we provide them all tie in to their natural behavior.
Each experience is interactive with our birds and includes a full aviary tour in which you get to learn about the farm, how agriculture and conservation can work together, and even hop a few birds on your hand and feed them. Learn about our commitment to sustainability with our permaculture farming techniques involving the animals in our care and connecting the ethos of preservation and compassion.
