Abstract

Animal welfare, education, conservation, research, and entertainment are major goals of modern zoos, but they can be in conflict. For example, visitors enjoy learning about and observing natural behavior in captive animals, but visitors often want to observe and interact with the animals in close...

Abstract

A scientific methodology in general should provide two things: first, a means of explanation and, second, a mechanism for improving that explanation.

Despite great adaptability, most nonhuman primates require regular tactile contact with conspecifics for their psychological well being.
