FujifilmSmithsonian national zoo selected Fujifilm : Fujifilm is pleased to celebrate the selection of Erika Bauer, Ph.D., as the 2007-2009 Fujifilm Curatorial Resident in Animal Care at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo. Made possible by a grant from Fujifilm, a National Zoo partner in conservation education, post-doctoral residency program builds on the Zoo’s tradition of training students in a variety of disciplines and inspiring them to pursue careers in animal care, conservation science and science education. Fujifilm recommended the creation of the curatorial residency as a way to celebrate the recent completion of the Fujifilm Giant Panda Habitat and help to provide the best hands-on animal care education to tomorrow’s zoo leaders.

Dr. Bauer will spend two years working with a mentor at the National Zoo, developing and honing skills in animal collection research and management, exhibit design, animal-care staff management and budgeting. Also as part of the residency, she will complete a research project that will contribute to the understanding and improved management of zoo collections. The National Zoo has a long history of training young scientists in resident programs, most of whom have advanced to significant leadership and scientific positions. The program had been halted for several years due to lack of funding. “The timing of this training opportunity couldn’t have been better for me as I’m at a critical juncture in my career where I can turn my focus toward applied work and use my knowledge and experience in animal behavior research to contribute substantively to the field and ultimately benefit the animals I study, “ said Dr. Bauer. “I’m grateful for Fujifilm’s support in reinstating the resident program.”

In 2005, Dr. Bauer received her doctorate in psychology and biopsychology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where she studied the social interactions of mammals and developed methods for analyzing play-fighting behavior in domestic dogs. Eventually, she expanded the scope of her dissertation work to include chimpanzees and bonobos. The results of some of her recent research can be found in the March 2007 issue of Animal Behaviour, the scientific journal of The Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour and the Animal Behavior Society. “Dr. Bauer is an excellent choice for the first Fujifilm Curatorial Resident,” said National Zoo Director John Berry. “I commend Fujifilm for recognizing the importance of training the next generation of conservation leaders.”

Fujifilm - National zoo curatorial program
“Fujifilm is proud to revitalize the National Zoo’s curatorial program,” said Celia Spence, Vice President, Environmental and Safety Affairs, Fujifilm Holdings America Corporation. “Caring for and preserving the environment is at the core of all of Fujifilm’s activities, and our sponsorship of the curatorial residency at the National Zoo is a symbol of that commitment to the next generation of conservation leaders.” Globally, Fujifilm is implementing a range of measures with the objective of contributing to sustainable development by attaining a high level of environmental quality in its products, services and corporate activities. For example, Fujifilm is actively promoting the transition to new energy fuels that will prevent global warming, as well as other environmentally friendly measures, such as the longstanding collaboration with the National Zoo.

Fujifilm curatorial residency sponsorship
Fujifilm’s sponsorship of the Curatorial Residency at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo is one key component in its multi-faceted corporate social responsibility platform, which fosters environmental consciousness while supporting Fujifilm’s sustainable business priorities. As the funder of the Fujifilm Giant Panda Habitat and Asia Trail, and as a member of the National Zoo’s Partners in Conservation Education program, Fujifilm is proud to have been a leader in supporting the National Zoo. Through its partnership with the National Zoo, Fujifilm has provided $7.8 million in support, which has helped fund a variety of giant panda conservation efforts: bringing Mei Xiang and Tian Tian to the National Zoo from China; supporting the science that made possible Tai Shan’s birth; and a comprehensive education program to raise public awareness about giant panda conservation.
