BPRC - 1. Successful workshop on animal welfare, training and enrichment

At the end of 2013, around 30 participants from all over Europe gathered for a workshop on Primate Welfare and Enrichment at the BPRC. This workshop was co-hosted by the EU programme EUPRIM-Net and by AnimalConcepts and focused on improving animal welfare through training and enrichment.

Insight into and discussions on the pros and cons of existing programs and sharing of new ideas and training philosophies ensures continuous improvement and thus better animal welfare. A short summary of the workshop has been published in ‘Enrichment Record’, page 30
