  9. From Human Wellbeing to an Ecocentric Perspective: How Nature-Connectedness Can Extend the Benefits of Marine Wildlife Experiences

    | Contributor(s):: Yerbury, Rachel, Weiler, Betty

    Contact with nature and experiences with nonhuman animals have been shown to contribute to nature connection and human wellbeing, both of which are innate needs according to the biophilia hypothesis. This study explores what marine mammal encounters mean to people and how they affect connection...

    | Contributor(s):: Perez, Barbara C., Mehrkam, Lindsay R., Foltz, Amanda R., Dorey, Nicole R.

    Environmental enrichment is a crucial element of promoting welfare for animals in captivity. However, enrichment programs are not always formally evaluated for their efficacy. Furthermore, there is little empirical evidence of enrichment evaluation for species of small cetaceans in zoological...

  12. Activity Budgets of Captive Cape Fur Seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) Under a Training Regime

    | Contributor(s):: Wierucka, Kaja, Siemianowska, Sonia, Wo┼║niak, Marta, Jasnosz, Katarzyna, Kieliszczyk, Magdalena, Kozak, Paulina, Sergiel, Agnieszka

    Ethograms and time budgets are crucial for the behavioral assessment of nonhuman animals in zoos, and they serve as references for welfare research. This study was conducted to obtain detailed time budgets of trained Cape fur seals (Arctocephalus pusillus) in captivity, to evaluate variations of...

  13. How We Train Dolphins?

    | Contributor(s):: Meg Sawada

    Through the internship program at Dolphin Quest Oahu (DQO), not only I have learned how to train dolphins but also I have learned the importance caring for animals with respect.
