A game changer for primate welfare & conservation attitudes: Free-choice digital enrichment & Human-Animal Interaction
When great apes exert control over their environment their welfare improves, and when zoo visitors have opportunities to interact with great apes their desire to conserve them increases. Although digital tools can offer this, many zoos and sanctuaries are yet to integrate them into their management strategies due to lack of research. The study will look at the effects of digital free-choice on animal welfare, and conservation attitude changes via direct interactions
