Effect of Feeding Enrichment on the Behaviour of Gazelles in Captivity


My name is Almudena “Ash” Viada, a Master’s student in the Applied Ethology and Animal Biology program.

I am very passionate about animal behaviour, and how we can use the knowledge obtained from studying as a tool to assist in conservation, in particular for ex situ programmes by aiding in improving the welfare of the animals we keep in captivity for this purpose.

For my thesis I worked with three species of African gazelle and how diet can affect their behaviour and welfare in captivity.
