Dear Valerie,

 

First of all I would like to thank you for the Lee Houts Scholarship for the Enrichment & Training Workshop in Philippines from 20-24 March, 2011. During this workshop, the lessons I received were very valuable not only for me but also for my facility and the wildlife in Viet Nam.

 

The lessons were amazing. I learnt how to solve out the problem with animal behaviour, as well as how to make enrichment and assess and evaluate them. The way you and your colleague gave the lesson to us was also very clear and understandable. I was really impressed by the lesson you gave on how to collect simple data to reach the goals for enrichment and how to train different animals to draw the animal's blood and treated their injury without using any anesthetic.

 

With what I have gained in this workshop, I hope to be able to solve many problems and questions in my job much better.

 

Your continuous support is much appreciated and we hope that we would have the opportunity to attend other learning workshops which will improve the welfare of the primates at the Endangered Primate Rescue Center in Cuc Phuong, Viet Nam.

 

Once again, thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Dear Valerie,

 

I would like to thank you for the Lee Houts Scholarship and the excellent education I received in the Animal and Training Workshop in the Philippines. During this workshop I found out that all the lessons I received are valuable not only for me but for the wildlife in my country.

 

All the lessons I received were amazing, such as how to solve animal behaviour problems and how to make enrichment to enrich them.

 

The way you and your colleagues gave the lesson to us was also very clear and understandable. I was really impressed with the demonstration of dolphins who were trained to let you draw their blood without using any anesthetic.

 

With the experience I had at this workshop, i think I can solve many problems and questions in my job much faster and easier.

 

In conclusion, your gifts has been appreciated and will continue to be most helpful in the future.

 

Thank you again,

Le Xuan Lam
