Marine Animal Trainer (Performer)

Marine Animal Trainer (Performer)
Marine animal trainers use effective methods to reliably elicit desired behaviors from marine mammals. Work environment and pressure may vary depending on whether animals are being trained for obedience, assisting people with performing on stage or show. Working with animals can be dangerous and unpredictable. Marine animal trainers many times must also be performers, dancing, swimming with the animals as part of a show. They must interact with the audience during and after a show.
