Measuring the Individual Differences of Giraffes

Since we strive to continuously monitor the welfare of the animals here at Brookfield Zoo, we are beginning another study to examine other elements of giraffe behavior while indoors for the winter. Behavioral monitoring of animals is an essential part of ensuring optimal welfare for an animal. Since the previous giraffe study indicated individual differences in the giraffes’ behavior, one of the focuses of our new research will be on each individual.
