Gail earned a Masters Degree in Behavioural Science from California State University. Through her consulting company, Active Environments, she has been an animal behaviour consultant and workshop instructor for 30 years, working with zoos, aquariums, sanctuaries, rescue centres, and research facilities internationally, guiding them in the development of behavioural management programs to enhance the care and welfare of captive animals. During her career, she co-developed innovative and progressive animal care techniques, including the concept of behavioural management, which integrates positive reinforcement training and environmental enrichment into a comprehensive systems-based approach to optimal care for all species. She also co-developed Protected Contact, a positive reinforcement-based system for managing elephants which has been adopted as the system of choice in progressive facilities throughout the world.
