Impact of Visitors on the Welfare of Macropods

The Detroit Zoo houses kangaroos and wallabies in an immersive walk-through habitat, where visitors share the animals’ space. While we know that this type of experience can be amazing for visitors, we do not know what effect it has on the animals. This study was conducted to better understand the impact that visitors may be having on the behavior of the kangaroos and wallabies housed in a walk-though habitat.
