Peter Amelia(They/Them) is from Seattle and started working with birds over 15 years ago. Peter’s goal is to improve animal welfare by creating choice and encouraging voluntary participation from learners in as many situations as possible. They began training early on and started the journey toward positive reinforcement based least restrictive methods. Since then, Peter has trained all kinds of animals from parrots to crows to hoofstock to snakes and lizards. They live with parrots, pigeons, goats, dogs, ducks, snakes, lizards, tortoises, fish and tarantulas. Along with consulting locally, Peter travels and provides virtual consultations. Peter is joined at the hip with Carrie Davis, another reptile trainer and co-founder of Reptelligence. Together they teach virtual reptile training courses and run a facebook group called Reptile Enrichment and Training (RET). When not training animals Peter trains people as a contortion and trapeze coach at a Seattle circus school as well as freelance performing.
