The husbandry technique of environmental enrichment is often used as a way to introduce novel stimuli into the routines of zoo-housed animals, yet objective evaluation of such techniques is rarely undertaken or reported. This study used behavioural observation methodologies to evaluate the impact of an enclosure rotation as enrichment on the activity budgets of two captive giant pandas, Funi and Wang Wang, housed at the Adelaide Zoo in South Australia. Instantaneous time sampling methods were… Expand
