Current Research

ORCA members conduct research related to animal behavior and training. These research projects help improve the care and training of both domestic and exotic animals. Projects are conducted in a variety of settings, including animal rescues and shelters, zoos, and in homes. ORCA members often work together on projects, with senior members teaching and advising newer ORCA members.

ORCA research has been published in academic journals and has been presented at national and international conferences. The results directly benefit other institutions and professionals who are concerned with animal welfare.
