9780632064076: Environmental Enrichment for Captive Animals

Environmental enrichment is a simple and effective means of improving animal welfare in any species – companion, farm, laboratory and zoo. For many years, it has been a popular area of research, and has attracted the attention and concerns of animal keepers and carers, animal industry professionals, academics, students and pet owners all over the world.

 

This book is the first to integrate scientific knowledge and principles to show how environmental enrichment can be used on different types of animal. Filling a major gap, it considers the history of animal keeping, legal issues and ethics, right through to a detailed exploration of whether environmental enrichment actually works, the methods involved, and how to design and manage programmes.

 


  • The first book in a major new animal welfare series

  • Draws together a large amount of research on different animals

  • Provides detailed examples and case studies

  • An invaluable reference tool for all those who work with or study animals in captivity

About the Author:

Robert Young is currently Professor of Animal Behaviour at PUC-Minas (Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais) in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil where he works on environmental enrichment in zoos and conducts field research on a number of different species. He has given lectures, workshops and mini-courses on the subject of environmental enrichment in the UK, USA, Denmark, Russia and Brazil.

Review:

"Young's précis of the 'animal rights' viewpoint is one of the best I have read in some time."

"This book deserves to be bought and read by a wide audience. It should be required reading for all undergraduate students intending to carry out research projects involving environmental enrichment."

Animal Welfare

"Scientific and passionate in the promotion of environmental enrichment."

Lab Animal News (US)

"Professor Young effortlessly leads the reader through the important scientific concepts and recognises the human dimension to what happens in practice. He writes with the passion of someone dedicated to improving animals in captivity."

"In short, if you want to learn more about environmental enrichment I do not know of a better place to turn, whatever your background."

Veterinary Times, 2004
