Primate Information Center.;]. Abstract. Since the publication of The Psychological Well-Being of Nonhuman Primates by the National Research Council, and the implementation of the Animal Welfare Act Amendment, many formal and informal nonhuman primate enrichment programs have been put into practice.
Reports of their successes and failures, however, are few. All programs have at least two Cited by: Environmental Enrichment for Nonhuman Primates: Theory and Application Environmental Enrichment for Nonhuman Primates: Theory and Application, ILAR Journal, Vol Issue 2, Preparation of this manuscript was supported in part by National Institutes of Health National Center for Research Resources grants RR and RR This document outlines the Primate Environmental Enrichment Program (PEEP) developed for the University of Michigan.
The program is designed to promote the psychological well-being of non-human primates used in research and to provide opportunities for NHPs to engage in non-injurious species-typical activities.
Environmental Enrichment: All nonhuman primates must be provided with environmental enrichment opportunities falling within one or more of the following enrichment categories: feeding, physical, sensory and occupational.
Any request by investigators for exclusion from environmental enrichment must be reviewed and approved by the IACUC. Introduction to Environmental Enrichment for Primates Environmental enrichment refers to items or stimuli that are provided to captive animals to support their behavioral needs.
All animals evolved distinct behavioral patterns, and difficulty in engaging in these behaviors can cause frustration or boredom, which, in turn, can lead to stress and. Environmental Enrichment for Nonhuman Primates, (updated ) •i About this Document iii Introduction v U.S.

Unfortunately, information on environmental enrichment for singly housed primates is scarce. Since the majority of primates used for research are singly caged and since such individuals suffer more from social deprivation, the need to enrich the environment of singly caged primates is even more urgent than it is for group-caged primates.

After that post was published, PRIM&R received a letter from Allyson J.

Enrichment techniques are chosen to address the needs of the animals, to allow species-typical activity and development, and to reduce abnormal behavior.
No individual is exempt from all aspects of the enrichment program. Of specific priority for environmental enrichment are indoor-housed, singly caged nonhuman primates and all chimpanzees.
