Shape of Enrichment Instructors:

Mark Kingston Jones and Sabrina Brando

We are pleased to announce this 3.5 day course, hosted by Lakeview Monkey Sanctuary, Ascot, UK.

LMS is not open to the public, providing a unique opportunity for participants to see the work being done at this charity, housing 35 rescued primates. Ascot is just 30 minutes drive from Heathrow Airport, with good bus and train connections, making it easy for international delegates.

This course is designed around the Shape of Enrichment, Inc. workshop format and is aimed specifically at keepers and animal caregivers who are currently working with captive species. The instructors will guide participants through a process that will allow them to develop more holistic and goal-oriented enrichment programs in their own facilities. The course is roughly split between lecture and practical components. Lecture topics include animal welfare and an enrichment overview, including framework, safety, and evaluation. The practical components will include behavioral problem solving, fire hose and rope splicing workshops, and the application of all the principles, as participants are split into groups to test the framework by creating and implementing enrichment for  animals at LMS. Please note you must be 18 or over to attend this course.

Please note: to keep course costs down, delegates are required to provide their own lunches, as there is no catering facility on site. Information on discounted bed and breakfast accommodation is available on request, and the number of available places is limited, so please book early.

The workshop registration fee is £175 / €200, which includes workshop materials over the 3½ days (Sat 11.30am-5pm, Sunday to Tuesday 9am-5pm), and tea/coffee and biscuits during the breaks.

For registration please contact:

Deadline for registration is 21 August 2019.
