Animal Welfare: Assessing Animal Welfare Standards in Zoological and Recreational Parks in South East Asia

Govindasamy Agoramoorthy (Author)

As public attitudes toward animal welfare and ethics have changed markedly in many parts of the world, it becomes imperative to update ethical and animal welfare status of zoos in Asia to the academic community and general public. This book for the first time examines the underlying causes of animal welfare problems in zoological and recreational parks throughout South East Asia and suggests scientific ways to improve professional standards. This monograph gives brief account of a variety of common problems zoos and recreational parks face in terms of ethics and welfare today. It introduces basic welfare problems and the concept of zoo assessments and how they improve welfare standards for many of the captive animals. Data on zoo animal welfare in Asia are limited to some journal articles and newspaper reports. Therefore this book should serve as an introductory, supplementary and reference text for animal welfare and ethics related courses in colleges, universities and other institutes of higher learning around the globe.
