THE ROLE OF STORYTELLING IN INTERPRETATION
Jungle Trails is a Zone filled
with awesome stories to tell!
Storytelling will help guests
build emotional connections
with our animals
Why Storytelling? Story telling is an incredibly powerful tool, it is
the basis of everything in human society!
Storytelling is the oldest method of transferring
knowledge in human history.
To put it simply, stories are how we come to
understand and connect with the world. Stories
shape almost everything we believe! It’s how
we understand ourselves, communicate, and
connect with one another.
Good storytelling has the power to transform
our perceptions of the world!
The Power of Storytelling
“Connect the Brain to the Heart” “Close Enough to Care”
Storytelling and Conservation
Scientists are quickly recognizing the power of storytelling in the field of Conservation
The purpose of storytelling is to make a connection with an individual on a personal level and deliver a message that resonates with them so that they are
moved to take some sort of action
Through a compelling story, you have the opportunity to inspire respect, understanding, and
action that will hopefully lead to conservation
Conservation is a people problem and people are built to hear and connect to stories!
