Handbook of Primate Husbandry and Welfare covers all aspects of primate care and management both in the laboratory environment and in zoos. From the welfare and ethics of primate captivity through to housing and husbandry systems, environmental enrichment, nutritional requirements, breeding issues, primate diseases, and additional information on transportation and quarantine . The institute conducts all of its work with noninvasive techniques that they would not hesitate to apply to human volunteers. Their goals are 1) to reconstruct human evolution, 2) pinpoint the differences and similarities between humans and apes, and 3) educate the public about apes, and promote their well-being and conservation.

Bloomsmithy, Carolyn M. . can make decent primate enrichment if the primate understands its reflective properties, which should be evaluated on an individual level. Appropriate use of mirrors as sensory enrichment can improve primate well-being and prevent suffering.

This chapter discusses the commitment to animal welfare that exist within the scientific community. It suggests that to continue the complex task of determining how the psychological well-being of captive nonhuman primates can be best enhanced, one must reject the polarizing idea that there are two opposing groups in contention for this determination: the animal welfare group and animal Cited by: 7. V Reinhardt and A Roberts Animal Welfare Institute, P0 Box , Washington, DC ,USA Abstract There is a growing awareness that non-human primates kept in zoos and laboratories deserve more species-appropriate stimulation because oftheir biological adaptation to a challenging environment.
Welcome to the sixth NC3Rs Primate Welfare Meeting. This meeting brings together scientists, veterinarians, animal care staff, facility managers and policy makers with a common interest in the welfare of laboratory-housed non-human primates. The broad aims of the meeting are to –. The effects of environmental enrichment, as the second component of behavioral management, on primate welfare have been reasonably well studied in the last two decades or so. Several recent reviews (Coleman et al., , Coleman et al., in press ; Lutz and Novak, ) are available for more specific discussions of the general principles Cited by: 1. In accordance with the Animal Welfare Act of and in conformity with the policy of this institution, this document presents the nonhuman primate environmental-enhancement (EE) plan used at the University of the Southeast (USE) to promote the physical and psychological well-being of nonhuman primates. Similarly, the Animal Welfare Act (7 U.S.C. §§ – ) requires that research facilities develop a plan for environmental enrichment “adequate to promote the psychological well-being of nonhuman primates” (7 U.S.C. §§ – , section ), which includes their social by:
