II Международна конференция за обучение на животните

ДОБРЕ ДОШЛИ В ATM2018
втората международна конференция в Полша за методите за обучение на животните

Целта на конференцията е да представи биологичните принципи и механизми за обучение на спътници, ферми
и диви животни. Чуждестранни гости ще представят нови сведения по темата. Нашата мисия е да разсеем
митовете, които все още съществуват в много публикации, и да представим основните методи и техники за
обучение, които са универсални за много видове.

Конференцията е организирана от ентусиасти, етолози, но преди всичко от бихейвиористи и зоопсихолози,
обучители, ветеринарни лекари, зоотехници и други, които искат да разширят уменията си.

Конференцията ще включва иновативни методи за обучение, които ви приближават до нови начини за работа с
животни и научна оценка на тяхната ефективност. Наблюдателите, инструкторите, обучителите, собствениците
на кучета или бибеолозите ще намерят научната основа за своята дейност и изследователите ще могат да
проучат практическото приложение и съображенията на дискутираните методи. Конференцията ще се занимае и
с етичните аспекти на работата с животни, като се акцентира върху благосъстоянието по време на обучението.

Насърчаваме делегатите от всички географски региони да работят във всички дисциплини и обучения за
поведение, за да вземат активно участие в тази изчерпателна конференция. За нас е удоволствие да Ви
поканим в Полша, за да споделите последните си развития в изследванията на поведението и обучението на
животните.

Empowering our Learners: Giving Training Back to the Animals
4

Training is often considered something we do to animals, however in this presentation Chirag will discuss the idea of
re-thinking the idea of training and demonstrate through video how it allows us to have rich conversations with the
animals that we are privileged to care for. This presentation aims to inspire you to empower the lives of the animals
that you share your lives with.

Understanding Behaviour with Behaviour Analysis

There are many ways to study behaviour in the applied setting, through this presentation Chirag will provide a
framework for understanding, managing and modifying behaviours using an applied technology based in the science
of behaviour change. So lets leave behind common sense, breaking down some common mis-conceptions and talk
behaviour.

НАШАТА ФИЛОСОФИЯ

Аз съм етолог и нищо не ми е чуждо за животните.
Ethoplanet е създаден в отговор на нарастващото търсене на знания в областта на етологията.
Основателят - AGATA MARIA KOKOCIŃSKA-KUSIAK създава това място, ръководена от професионализъм,
безгранична любов и съпричастност към животните. Затова в Ethoplanet са най-добрите специалисти - хора с
образователен ценз, с широки познания и отворен ум, и в същото време практикуващи с дългогодишен опит.
Ние се отличаваме с отговорност и непрекъснат стремеж да вдигнем нивото, да разширим знанията и
квалификациите си!
Холистичният подход е от решаващо значение за нас.
Нашата мисия е да насърчава: отговорно и хуманно отношение към животните, грижи за животните,
съзнателно използване, и най-вече - зачитане на животните без излишна anthropomorphisation - при зачитане
на техните различни нужди и поведение.
Ако имате отворен ум - това място е само за вас!
