From Good Care to Great Welfare Symposium

The Center for Zoo Animal Welfare hosted a two-day symposium featuring presentations, posters and panels focusing on four primary topic areas, including understanding and bridging the gap between providing good care and ensuring great welfare; understanding the impacts of – and compensating for – captivity; multidisciplinary approaches and assessment techniques to better understand and enhance zoo animal welfare; welfare of “non-charismatic” vertebrates - birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish.
