We are pleased to announce this 3.5 day course, hosted by Lakeview Monkey Sanctuary, Ascot, UK.

Designed around the SHAPE format and aimed specifically at Keepers and Animal Caregivers, currently working with captive species. Instructors will guide participants through a process that will allow them to develop more holistic and goal oriented enrichment programs in their own facilities. The course is roughly split between lecture and practical components. Lecture topics include: Animal welfare, and an enrichment overview, including the framework, safety and evaluation. The practical components of the course will include behavioural problem solving, fire hose and rope splicing workshops, and the application of all the taught principles as participants are split into groups, allowing the opportunity to test the framework with the facilities animals. Please note you must be 18 or over to attend this course.

Please note to keep course costs down delegates are required to provide their own lunches as there is no catering facility on site. Information on discounted bed and breakfast accommodation is available on request and the number of available places is limited, so please book early.

The workshop registration fee is £175 / €200, which includes workshop materials over the 3½ days (Sat 11.30am-5pm, Sunday to Tuesday 9am-5pm), and tea/coffee and biscuits during the breaks.
