Abstract

Sustainable wildlife management (SWM) is based on a synergy of traditional/local knowledge, advances in scientific knowledge, and fast-evolving economic and social circumstances. A widely accepted cornerstone of SWM globally is that conservation and utilization need to be effectively integrated,...

Abstract

Ensuring good health and welfare is an increasingly important consideration for conservation of endangered species, whether free-ranging or managed to varying degrees under human care. The welfare-based design of a new habitat for Asian elephants at the Oregon Zoo focused on meeting the elephants'...

Abstract

GPS collars are frequently used to study the (behavioural) ecology of species. However, such collars can cause behavioural changes and can have negative physiological effects on the individuals wearing them. A pilot study to obtain data on behavioural and physiological effects of GPS collars on the ...

AbstractFull Text

Polar bears (Ursus maritimus) are vulnerable to environmental changes, which often leads to the development of stereotypical behaviour in captivity. Multiple studies had shown that the usage of enrichment could reduce stereotypical behaviour in captive animals thereby, improving their welfare. When ...

AbstractFull Text

Measuring behavioural differences for captive Sumatran tigers (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a useful tool for the optimisation of captive environments and animal welfare. Behavioural differences can be measured by comparing several individuals and by comparing days with enrichment to days without...

Abstract

Many articles have shown the benefits of operant conditioning training techniques in the care and welfare of several species of nonhuman primates; however, the information regarding their use in strepsirrhine species is scarce. We assessed the development and current status of training programs...

Abstract

The effect of olfactory stimuli as a means of environmental enrichment is underexplored in canids. The crab-eating fox is the most abundant wild canid in zoos, but few studies have addressed the reaction of this species to olfactory cues. This study sought to investigate the reaction to olfactory...

Abstract

The white-naped mangabey is an endangered and rare zoo species, yet little is known concerning their welfare in captivity. The assessment of welfare should incorporate a net balance of negative and positive welfare behavioural indicators. These behaviours, and thus welfare, can be affected by the...

Abstract

Despite no significant difference in wounding between bachelor and mixed-sex groups of western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) in zoological settings, anecdotal concerns around the frequency and severity of wounding in bachelor groups have perpetuated opinions of all-male units as...
