Articles on Captive Wildlife

This is a collection of articles on Captive Wildlife from JAAWS. The Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science (JAAWS) is the leading peer-reviewed journal on the science of animal welfare for veterinarians, scientists and public policy makers. It presents articles and reports on practices that demonstrably enhance the welfare of wildlife, companion animals and animals used in research, agriculture and zoos.
