Abstract

Environmental enrichment is, or should be, an integral part of any husbandry programme. The concepts and philosophies of enrichment are well documented yet the application of such techniques to birds has been limited. Even now when more enrichment is being provided for birds much of it is centred on parrots, possibly as a means of alleviating undesirable behaviours rather than providing enriched environments. The strategies developed for psittacine enrichment at Edinburgh Zoo are described and these have now been extended to include other birds in the collection.
