CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The keeping of zoo animals has become a central tool in the conservation of
some of the world's most fascinating, yet threatened, species. But how do zoos
operate on a day-to-day basis? What are the key problems zoos face in trying to
feed, breed and keep healthy the animals in their care? How do they play their
part in conserving biodiversity?
Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management and Welfare addresses the key questions
surrounding the keeping of zoo animals, and reveals how we can apply our
ever-growing understanding of animal behaviour to ensure zoo animals are
managed as effectively as possible.
Drawing on their extensive experience of zoo research, practice, and teaching,
the authors blend together theory with a broad range of both mammalian and
non-mammalian examples to give a highly-readable overview of this burgeoning
field. Zoo Animals: Behaviour, Management and Welfare is the ideal resource for
anyone needing a thorough grounding in this subject, whether as a student or as
a zoo professional.
