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.
