  1. Cortisol levels in dolphin Tursiops truncatus interactive programs linked to humanNiveles de cortisol en delfines Tursiops truncatus vinculados a programas interactivos con humanos

    Contributor(s):: Sanchez Okrucky, R., Morales Vela, B.

    Understanding the physiological changes in animals during physical activity to improve animal welfare has become increasingly important in animal collections that remain under human care. To date, the effect of interactive programs on dolphins under human care has not been evaluated, for that...

  2. 'A place for everything': moral landscapes of 'swiftlet farming' in George Town, Malaysia

    Contributor(s):: Connolly, C.

    This paper is based on 6 months of ethnographic, multi-sited research in Malaysia, and investigates the relatively recent phenomenon of edible birds' nest farming in urban areas ('swiftlet farming'). Swiftlet farms are typically converted shophouses or other buildings which have been modified for...

  3. In the water with white sharks (Carcharodon carcharias): participants' beliefs toward cage-diving in Australia

    Contributor(s):: Apps, K., Dimmock, K., Lloyd, D., Huveneers, C.

    White shark (Carcharodon carcharias) cage-diving tourism is a controversial activity that provokes emotional and often opposing points of view. With increasing demand for shark tourism since the 1990s, the underlying determinants driving this growth in participation remain unclear. This paper...

    How smart are fish? Integrating what scientists and fishers know

    The talks in this event will challenge the commonly-held view of fish as robot-like animals with no intelligence and a 30 second memory, which often leads to fish conservation being ignored in...

  5. Dusky dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obscurus) behavior and human interactions: implications for tourism and aquaculture

    Contributor(s):: Nicholas Matthew Thomson Duprey

    Interactions between humans and dusky dolphins in the coastal waters of New Zealand are increasing. My research focused on tourism interactions, with Kaikoura as the study site; and, on habitat use in an active aquaculture area, with Admiralty Bay as the study site. In Kaikoura, companies engaged...

  6. To Eat or Not to Eat, that is the Question on Class Pets: Michael Paoli at TEDxNavesink

    Contributor(s):: Michael Paoli

    Remember being bored in school? Don't you wish you could pick vegetables in the hallway and eat them on the way to your next class? Did you ever consider eating your class pet in 7th grade? In this talk Math teacher Michael Paoli shows how an aquaponics fish tank in a New York City public...

  8. The impact of streetlights on an aquatic invasive species: artificial light at night alters signal crayfish behaviour

    Contributor(s):: Thomas, J. R., James, J., Newman, R. C., Riley, W. D., Griffiths, S. W., Cable, J.

    Artificial light at night (ALAN) can significantly alter the behaviour, communication and orientation of animals, and will potentially interact with other stressors to affect biodiversity. Invasive, non-native species are one of the largest threats to freshwater biodiversity; however, the impact...

  9. Does environmental enrichment promote recovery from stress in rainbow trout?

    Contributor(s):: Pounder, K. C., Mitchell, J. L., Thomson, J. S., Pottinger, T. G., Buckley, J., Sneddon, L. U.

    The EU Directive on animal experimentation suggests that all protected animals should have enrichment to improve welfare yet relatively little research has been conducted on the impact of enrichment in fish. Studies employing enrichment in zebrafish have been contradictory and all fish species...

  10. Determining the effects of duration and recency of exposure to environmental enrichment

    Contributor(s):: Bergendahl, I. A., Salvanes, A. G. V., Braithwaite, V. A.

    Experience can help animals adapt their behaviour to fit the environment or conditions that they find themselves in. Understanding how and when experience affects behaviour is important for the animals we rear in captivity. This is particularly true when we rear animals with the intent of...
