About the class

Join Cougar Mountain Zoo virtually for a fun-filled adventure all about animal training in the zoo world! Watch live as some of the zoo’s wildlife ambassadors display their trained behaviors, check out how animals problem-solve with interactive enrichment, and sit back and enjoy discovering why these species are so important to our natural world. Keep an eye out for some furry, feathery, and crawly friends!

Meet your instructors, Sasha and Jordan.

Sasha Hendricks and Jordan Veasley have been working in the wildlife and zoo world for a combined 25 years. Sasha has worked with a variety of species, from smaller animals such as macaws and wallabies to powerful predators like tigers, cougars, and wolves. For a number of years, she spent time assisting on researching cougars in the Cascade Mountain Range in Washington State. Jordan has experience working with numerous species from multiple zoos in Washington State, as well as having his own social media platform educating people worldwide on animal conservation. Both of their goals revolve around doing all they can to educate the public on Earth's vanishing species.
