To achieve benchmarks of success for captive population planning, managers need reliable measures of animal personalities (i.e. heritable temperament and learned coping styles). Although researchers have identified best practices for measuring behavioral types suitable for specific roles in zoo environments, the approach needs to expand to include measurements of behavior types suitable for specific roles in reintroduction programs designed to meet conservation goals. Selected zoo populations… CONTINUE READING
