  4. Long-Term Spatial Restriction Generates Deferred Limited Space Use in a Zoo-Housed Chimpanzee Group

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Duncan, Luke Mangaliso, D’Egidio Kotze, Chiara, Pillay, Neville

    Background: Appropriate space is considered paramount for good captive animal welfare. There has been a concerted effort by captive institutions, particularly zoos, to provide captive animals with relatively large, naturalistic enclosures which havehad demonstrated welfare benefits for animals....

  5. Unanswered Questions and Hypotheses about Domestic Cat Behavior, Ecology, and the Cat-Human Relationship

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Turner, D. C.

    After recent publication of several reviews covering research results from the last 35 years of domestic cat studies, a number of important unanswered questions and hypotheses have arisen that could interest active researchers, especially those beginning their academic careers. Some sections of...

  13. Understanding the Behavior of Sanctuary-Housed Chimpanzees During Public Programs

    | Contributor(s):: Hansen, Bethany K., Hopper, Lydia M., Fultz, Amy L., Ross, Stephen R.

    At zoos, and some sanctuaries, members of the public can observe the resident animals. Examining the characteristics and consequences of this type of human–animal encounter is important to understand public education and engagement as well as animal behavior and welfare. Zoos typically have a...

  14. The non-visual image of the city: how blind and visually impaired white cane users conceptualize urban space

    | Contributor(s):: Šakaja, Laura

  15. Use of space and behavior of weaned piglets kept in enriched two-level housing system

    | Contributor(s):: Fels, Michaela, Lüthje, Franziska, Faux-Nightingale, Alice, Kemper, Nicole

    In this study, the possibility of introducing an elevated platform to a piglet pen was explored as a way of increasing available space and creating functional areas. On the platform, nine different manipulable materials were offered. In four batches, 40 weaned piglets were kept for five weeks in...

    The island of Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, is populated by free-roaming dogs who were introduced during World War II. The local nonhuman animal control agency manages this population; however, the demographic information and public perception of this population remain...

  17. Long-Term Macroevaluation of Environmental Enrichment in Three Brown Bears (Ursus arctos) at Barcelona Zoo

    | Contributor(s):: Soriano, Ana I., Vinyoles, Dolors, Maté, Carmen

    The evaluation of enrichment programs is important to determine their effect on nonhuman animal welfare. The daily activity pattern and use of space of 3 brown bears (Ursus arctos) were used for long-term macroevaluation of enrichment to compare the baseline and enrichment phases. Focal sampling...

  18. Instituting Dark-Colored Cover to Improve Central Space Use Within Guinea Pig Enclosure

    | Contributor(s):: Byrd, Charles P., Winnicker, Christina, Gaskill, Brianna N.

    Domestic guinea pigs (Cavia aperea f. porcellus) in laboratories have been shown to actively avoid the centers of their cages. This experiment tested a novel, dark-colored “shader” placed over the central portion of a cage. Based on the observed behavior of wild guinea pig species, it was...
