Improving Welfare Standards

We provide educational workshops for animal management staff at Chinese and Vietnamese zoos and safari parks on meeting the health and welfare needs of captive animals. We promote and campaign for changes in the way captive animals are cared for in public facilities throughout the country.

We demonstrate how behaviour management programmes can be used to stimulate captive animals, encourage natural behaviour patterns and prevent stereotypic behaviour. We also run practical workshops on how to create simple enrichment toys and outdoor furnishings, and how to rotate enrichment programmes to improve animal welfare.
