The Science of Animal Care

One of the exciting new challenges in enhancing high-level animal care in zoos is applying a broad range of sciences to evaluate animal well-being. The Chicago Zoological Society has addressed this challenge by establishing the Center for the Science of Animal Care and Welfare, a program designed to advance the science of “animal-directed” care at Brookfield Zoo.
