Another Year of Excellence

Dear Gifted Program Supporters,

The results of the program speak for themselves: over the last year, 10 program participants received an average result (evaluated independently by the Israeli Ministry of Education) of 96.5 out of 100. The research topics for the 2014-2015 school year were as follows:

The effects of enrichment on wolf behavior

Human and chimpanzee interactions

Interaction between female Asian elephants

The effects of enrichment on Kea parrot behavior

The process of introducing Sumatran tigers

The effects of enrichment on giraffe behavior

The effects of music on Siamang behavior

Medical indicators in elephants and giraffes through thermal imaging

The effects of olfactory enrichment on Asian short-clawed otters

The effects of environmental variables on Nile crocodile behavior

We have developed a sought-after and successful program that reflects the core values of the Zoo’s mission – community outreach, inclusion and scientific excellence. Gifted students are likely to hold leadership positions in business, industry, politics and academia in the future. The goal of this program is to create the next generation of leadership in nature conservation so that, in whichever field these students find themselves in the future, they will be advocates for environmental conservation. 

Thank you for helping us to make this program possible for the exceptional students in our community.

Warm regards,

The Zoo "Bagrut" Team
