In this article we will talk about what is known as the KGS or the Keep Going Signal.

It is a concept that, despite not having an official definition or that has been described scientifically, we did not want to overlook.

Alicia Borque Espinosa, Biologist and pre-doctoral researcher at the University of Valencia and the Oceanogràfic Foundation. His research work focuses on the study of the physiology of the respiratory system in different species of marine mammals, with the aim of improving conservation efforts to help protect these animals in their natural environment.

We had the opportunity to interview Vicki Putman-Weber, senior killer whale trainer at SeaWorld.

She was born in Albany (USA), and she studied biology at Linn–Benton Community College and Zoology at Oregon State University. She began her career in 2000 as an intern at Oregon Coast Aquarium working with seals and sea lions. Later she worked at Ocean World, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom and finally at SeaWorld San Diego, in California.

In the summer of 2012 Zoomarine Italy decided to host a young, small group of Australian Pelicans (Pelecanus conspicillatus) in the vision of implementing them into the bird collection.

With the arrival of these animals a lot of questions and doubts needed to be answered: are they social animals? What is their correct diet? How can we control their health? How can we manage these big birds?

In past articles we have talked about reinforcement and the properties they have to create behavior.
