Zoo Science for Keepers and Aquarists is a free service that aims to bridge the gap between hard-core empirical quantitative research and the people who care for animals on a day to day basis.

Each month will feature science published in peer reviewed journals that is directly relevant to improving zoo and aquarium animal welfare.

The papers may offer clear solutions or ideas you may be able to implement or tweak to fit your animals. Some may reveal useful zoo or aquarium enrichment ideas, training techniques or improved environmental parameters.

Do check with others before implementing anything you read on this site.
