Wildlife behaviours are key attractions to many nature based visitors and tourists. These
behaviours are not noticeable to the common visitor unless they are interpreted and
communicated by guides or tourism officers. Among the many roles of tourism officers and
tour operators is the interpretation of wildlife to visitors. In order to carry out their tasks
effectively, these professionals must be equipped with the skills and knowledge of
identification, description, analysis, and communication of wildlife behaviour to visitors.
