Animal behavior researchers host event on MU CampusPosted on 30 July 2016 at 5:19pm
COLUMBIA - The Animal Behavior Society held an event for families to come and learn about animal research.
The group held the event at the Anheuser Busch Natural Resources Building on MU Campus.
Attendees of the Adventures in Animal Behavior event were able to participate in activites like radio-tracking fake mice, blow-darting pictures of baboons and feeling the world like a spider.
"I think it's important on one hand for people to see what animal behavior researchers do, but it's also important for the scientists to communicate their research to the public. So I think it's important from both perspectives," event coordinator Emilie Snell-Rood said.
This kicked off the 53rd annual Conference of the Animal Behavior Society, which goes through Wednesday.
