AbstractFull Text

Chester Zoo provides a valuable opportunity to observe five infant orangutans being parentreared in one place. The enclosures and husbandry at Chester are carefully designed with compatibility of conspecifics in mind and to reflect their semi-solitary wild behaviour. Two related females are housed...

An adult male and two adult female gorillas were mixed to form a new group in the recently built facility at Bristol Zoo Gardens. The keepers maintained oestrus charts using observations of mating as confirmation of oestrus. Both females appeared to be cycling during 1999 but with different cycle...

AbstractFull Text

There are many welfare problems associated with keeping wild animals in captivity and environmental enrichment techniques are widely used as a means of improving captive conditions. Previous research on environmental enrichment has been biased towards non-social techniques; here, social housing as...

Paignton Zoo Environmental Park has maintained a troop of hamadryas baboons on Baboon Rock since 1976. Due to prolific breeding, in the last three years several measures have been taken to control population growth and reduce overcrowding in the exhibit. In January 1999, 20 young males were removed ...

Abstract

One aim of environmental enrichment techniques is to replicate 'wild-like' behaviour in captivity. In this study, three captive troops of Sulawesi crested black macaques (M. nigra) in Chester, Jersey and Marwell Zoos, UK were each observed for 100 h in large naturalistic enclosures In May and June...

Abstract

Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) that are kept in captivity come from a wide variety of backgrounds and a proportion of them have been subjected to maternal separation and social deprivation during development. The long-term effects of such practices have received little investigation. This study...
