Abstract

Jessica Kraut, Psychology and Biology minor, and Anthony Bohner, Psychology, talk about the three-week Ape Sapiens course where they observed primates and built enrichment tools to provide the apes with cognitive stimulation. After two weeks in Kentucky at the Louisville Zoo and the Primate Sanctuary, the course ends with discussion about the ethical and philosophical questions around captive animals. The course is taught by IWU's Assistant Professor of Psychology Ellen Furlong and Professor of Philosophy, Jack Furlong of Transylvania University.
