Zoo Animals Behaviour Management And Welfare

The keeping of zoo animals has become a central tool in the conservation of some of the world’s most fascinating, yet threatened, species. But how do zoos operate on a day-to-day basis? What are the key problems they face in trying to feed, breed, and keep healthy the animals in their care? How can they play their part in conserving biodiversity?

Th is book is about that evidence base, and what it tells us about the behaviour, management, and welfare of animals in zoos. And, of course, that evidence is best understood within its context, so we also consider aspects of the context within which zoos operate, such as their history and their role in conservation and education. Equally important to this book is consideration of how that evidence base comes about through the application of scientific research methodology.

Zoo Animals Behaviour Management and Welfare addresses the key questions surrounding the keeping of exotic animals in captivity, and reveals how we can apply our ever-growing understanding of animal behaviour to ensure zoo animals are managed as effectively as possible.

Drawing on their extensive experience of zoo research, practice, and teaching, the authors blend together theory with a broad range of both mammalian and non-mammalian examples to give a highly-readable overview of this burgeoning field. Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management, and Welfare is the ideal resource for anyone needing a thorough grounding in this subject, whether as a student or as a zoo professional.
