AnimalConcepts organises in collaboration with the Artis Zoo an environmental enrichment workshop, combining the theory and science with the practical aspects of a professional enrichment programme. The workshop will cover basic and advanced concepts of environmental enrichment, nutrition, safety, human-animal relationship, animal sentience, stereotypic behaviour, problem solving techniques and case studies. The workshop also has the component of designing, developing, constructing, implementing and observing your own enrichment on various predetermined species from a variety of taxa through practical work in Artis Zoo.
We have a very special invited speaker, specialised in bears, Else Poulsen!
Dates: March 30rd - April 1st. 2011
This workshop is open to zookeepers, veterinarians, laboratory technicians, other animal shelter personnel and other animal care specialist, researchers in life sciences and students.
