  1. Safeguarding the welfare of livestock grazing on nature conservation sites

    Contributor(s):: Grayson, F. W.

    Nature conservationists frequently use domestic livestock to graze unimproved semi-natural vegetation in order to achieve the ecological objectives that they are seeking for the sites that they manage. This paper reviews the role of the Grazing Animals Project in raising awareness of the factors...

  2. Selective breeding of primates for use in research: consequences and challenges

    Contributor(s):: Honess, P., Stanley-Griffiths, M. A., Narainapoulle, S., Naiken, S., Andrianjazalahatra, T.

    Primates are bred in captivity for a number of purposes, from zoo-based captive breeding programmes for conservation to breeding for biomedical research. In each case, breeding animals that are fit for purpose, either as viable candidates for reintroduction or as valid research models, has...

  3. Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare. (Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare.)

    Contributor(s):: Fraser, D.

  4. The conservation-welfare nexus in reintroduction programmes: a role for sensory ecology. (Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare.)

    Contributor(s):: Swaisgood, R. R.

    Since reintroduction programmes involve moving animals from captive or wild environments and releasing them into novel environments, there are sure to be a number of challenges to the welfare of the individuals involved. Behavioural theory can help us develop reintroductions that are better for...

  5. Toward a synthesis of conservation and animal welfare science. (Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare.)

    Contributor(s):: Fraser, D.

    Conservation biology and animal welfare science are multidisciplinary fields of research that address social concerns about animals. Conservation biology focuses on wild animals, works at the level of populations, ecological systems and genetic types, and deals with threats to biodiversity and...

  6. Trade-offs between welfare, conservation, utility and economics in wildlife management - a review of conflicts, compromises and regulation

    Contributor(s):: Reynolds, J. C.

    In choosing among alternative wildlife management techniques, trade-offs between animal welfare and conservation, utility or economics are often apparent. This paper reviews the roles of science, scientists, regulators and educators in attempts to overcome this inter-dependence and to make...

  7. Traps for killing stoats ( Mustela erminea ): improving welfare performance

    Contributor(s):: Warburton, B., Poutu, N., Peters, D., Waddington, P.

    Fenn traps are widely used in New Zealand for control of small predators. Introduced stoats (Mustela erminea) pose a significant risk to many indigenous New Zealand bird species, and the Department of Conservation (DOC) has used Fenn traps to reduce their numbers over the last 20-30 years....

  8. Wild animal conservation and welfare in agricultural systems. (Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare.)

    Contributor(s):: Mathews, F.

    At least one-third of the land on earth is used for agricultural production and conflicts with the interests of wildlife are inevitable. These conflicts are likely to escalate as the human population expands and as the scale and intensity of agricultural production increases. This paper argues...

  9. Wildlife conservation and animal welfare: two sides of the same coin? (Special Issue: Conservation and animal welfare.)

    Contributor(s):: Paquet, P. C., Darimont, C. T.

    Human activities deprive wild animals of their life requisites by destroying or impoverishing their surroundings, causing suffering of individuals. Yet, the notion that animal welfare applies to wildlife has escaped many animal welfarists and conservationists. A well-accepted and applied ethical...

  10. Closing the gap between animals and humans

    Contributor(s):: Jorgensen, J. R.

  11. Human-animal bond: endangered birds, the environment and the veterinarian's role
