The University of Tasmania is conducting research in to the resilience, wellbeing and mental health needs of animal care professionals. The study hopes to:
- Identify resilience and wellbeing (both positive and negative) of animal care professionals in Australia.
- Identify what individual and workplace resources would benefit these individuals.
- Develop readily accessible resources to promote resilience and positive wellbeing in animal care professionals.
This subject is obviously very relevant to the zookeeping community and this study will hopefully have some very tangible results for ASZK members. Those who complete the survey can enter a draw for one of six $50 Coles/Myer gift vouchers.
