Challenge is Enriching, Rocks are Not! 
Brian Greco, DVM, Animal and Food Science, University of Wisconsin-River Falls

“Environmental enrichment” has become a ubiquitous component of animal care programs. But, few understand the underlying theory or practical applications.

The goal of this presentation is to review the history of environmental enrichment; discuss the importance of designing enrichment practices around behavioral, cognitive, and physical challenge; identify methods that provide these challenges; and review the assessment of enrichment practices.
